An 18-year-old man was shot and killed Thursday afternoon in north suburban Mundelein, according to police.

Officers responded about 1 p.m. to gunfire in the 300 block of North Lake Street and found a man gravely wounded, Mundelein police said in a statement.

The man, identified as Gavile Jackson of Mundelein, was taken to Condell Medical Center in Libertyville and pronounced dead, according to the Lake County coroner’s office.
