Two people were killed, and three others wounded Saturday when they were shot in Englewood on the South Side.

They were on the front porch of a home about 5:51 p.m. in the 7100 block of South Paulina Street when they heard gunfire, Chicago police said.

Jintel Cutler, 32, and 26-year-old Mack D. Dickson were killed, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Cutler, who lived in Lawndale, was shot in the chest and thigh and pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Dickson was hit in the chest and pronounced at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said. He lived in the Back of the Yards.

An autopsy Sunday ruled both of their deaths to be homicides, the medical examiner’s office said.

A 38-year-old man who was shot in the lower back had his condition stabilized at the same hospital, police said.

A woman, 25, was struck in the abdomen and taken to St. Bernard Hospital in critical condition, police said. She was to be transferred to Stroger Hospital.

A 27-year-old man was shot in the arm, and his condition was stabilized at St. Bernard Hospital, police said.

Witnesses told police they did not see who fired the shots, but one told investigators a dark-colored vehicle drove off from the scene, police said.

No arrests have been made. Area South detectives are investigating.
