A man was killed and another wounded in a shooting Monday evening in West Garfield Park.

The two men were standing on a front porch about 5:25 p.m. in the 4400 block of West Jackson Boulevard when a gray SUV pulled up and someone inside began firing shots towards them, Chicago police said.

One man, 31, suffered a gunshot wound to the back and the other man, 35, was struck in the left shoulder, police said.

Both men went to Mt. Sinai hospital, where the 31-year-old was later pronounced dead, police said.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the man as Antonio Meeks of LeClaire Courts. An autopsy released Tuesday ruled his death a homicide.

The 35-year-old man was listed in good condition, police said.

No one is in custody, according to police.

Area Four detectives are investigating the shooting.
