One man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting Sunday in Roseland on the Far South Side.

Someone approached the men, 20 and 50, about 4:50 p.m. and fired shots as they hung out in a backyard in the 11300 block of South Harvard Avenue, Chicago police said.

The younger man was struck multiple times and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died, police said. The older man was taken to the same hospital in good condition with a gunshot wound to the leg.

The 20-year-old was identified as Marshawn Marcis Parker of Gary, Indiana, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide.
