A 28-year-old man was killed in a drive-by Wednesday in West Pullman on the Far South Side.

About 12:10 a.m., he had just got out of his vehicle in the 200 block of East 121st Place when someone in a passing gray vehicle fired shots at him, Chicago police said.

He was struck multiple times in the chest and torso, police said. He was rushed to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Antoine Johnson. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide.

Just over an hour earlier, two other men were shot, one fatally, in the same neighborhood.
