Two men were fatally shot Wednesday afternoon in South Chicago.

The men were standing on a sidewalk in the 8700 block of South Commercial Avenue about 4:30 p.m. when three males got out of a red sedan and fired shots, Chicago police said.

Shawn Boone, 37, suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Mark Lee, 40, was struck in the head and taken to the same hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, police said. He died due to his injuries almost two weeks later, the medical examiner’s office said.

No one was in custody.
