A 22-year old man was killed Saturday in a drive-by in East Garfield Park on the West Side.

About 4:40 p.m., Keyontae Hodges was standing on a sidewalk in the 3700 block of West Ohio Street when a passing silver Infiniti began firing shots in his direction, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Hodges, who lived in East Garfield Park, was struck multiple times and rushed to Stroger Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, authorities said.

An autopsy Sunday found he died of multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.

No one is in custody as Area North detectives investigate.
