One man was killed and two others were wounded early Tuesday in a shooting in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side.
The three men were standing in an empty parking lot when four males they did not know walked up and opened fire about 2:50 a.m. in the 4000 block of West Fifth Avenue, Chicago Police said.
Mario Mullens, 21, was shot multiple times and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. He lived in the East Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.
A 23-year-old was shot in the leg and a 20-year-old man was shot in both arms and suffered a graze wound to his back, police said. Both were also taken to Stroger, where the older man’s condition was stabilized and the other was in good condition.
Area North detectives were investigating.
