Three people were wounded, one fatally, Sunday in a shooting in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.

About 1:15 p.m., three men, 19, 20 and 22, were in an alley in the 3000 block of West 44th Street when they were approached by a group of people who pulled out guns and opened fire, Chicago police said.

The 19-year-old was struck in the back and taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, police said. He was pronounced dead less than an hour later, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The medical examiner’s office identified him as Alexis Rivera, of West Lawn. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide.

The 20-year-old was struck in the elbow and taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition, police said. The 22-year-old was grazed by a bullet on his buttocks and refused treatment, police said.

No one is in custody as Area One detectives investigate.
