Two people were shot, one fatally, Thursday morning in Woodlawn on the South Side.

Steven Lane, 22, and another man were standing outside about 8:40 a.m. in the 6200 block of South Evans Avenue when a small gray vehicle drove by and someone inside fired shots, Chicago police said.

Lane was shot and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said. Autopsy results released Friday said he died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

An 18-year-old man was struck in the abdomen and taken to the same hospital, police said. His condition was not immediately known.
