Three men were wounded, one fatally, in a shooting outside a Pete’s Fresh Market grocery store Thursday on the Near West Side, police said.

According to Chicago police, two men, 19 and 22, were riding in a vehicle about 7:30 p.m. in the 2300 block of West Monroe Street when someone fired shots at them from another vehicle.

The 22-year-old was struck in the neck and the other man suffered gunshot wounds to his shoulder and arm, police said.

Paramedics picked the men up outside the grocery store, fire officials said.

They were taken to Stroger Hospital, where the older man was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Kalomo Rankin of Jeffery Manor.

An autopsy released Tuesday determined he died of multiple gunshot wounds. His death was ruled a homicide.

The other man was taken to the same hospital in good condition, officials said.

Another man, 19, later showed up at Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, police said. He was in fair condition.

Police taped off an area around a silver-colored vehicle with several bullet holes on its windshield in the grocery store’s parking lot.

Area detectives are investigating.
