A teenage boy was killed and a man was wounded Monday in a shooting in Gresham on the South Side.
The pair were outside about 6:45 p.m. in the 7900 block of South Loomis Boulevard when someone approached them and opened fire, Chicago police said.
Bryan Perkins, 17, was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The man, 40, was struck in the back and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition.
An autopsy released Tuesday found Perkins died of a gunshot wound to the head, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled a homicide.
Perkins lived a few blocks away from the site of the shooting in Gresham, the medical examiner’s office said.
Police initially said the deceased was a 23-year-old man, but later revealed that Perkins was 17.
No one is in custody as Area South detectives investigate.
