One man was killed and three others wounded in a shooting late Friday night in Austin on the West Side.

About 11:55 p.m., the four men were standing outside in the 700 block of North Lockwood Avenue when three people approached them and fired shots, Chicago police said.

A 29-year-old man was struck in the head and back and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

He was identified as Alexander Davis of Fernwood by the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy conducted Sunday ruled his death a homicide.

A man, 40, suffered gunshot wounds to the hip and leg and another man, 45, was also struck in the leg, police said. Both men were transported to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.

A fourth man, 62, suffered a graze wound to the back and was taken to the same hospital in good condition.

The shooters may have entered a gray Nissan after the attack, according to police.

There is no one in custody.
