Two men were killed Wednesday night in a drive-by shooting in West Town on the Near West Side.
The men, 28 and 31, were standing outside in the first block of North Western Avenue when someone in a passing red Honda SUV fired at them about 9 p.m., Chicago police said.
The 31-year-old was struck in the head, the arm and foot, and the younger man was struck in the head, police said. They were both taken to Stroger Hospital where they were pronounced dead.
The younger man was identified as Henry Scott, according to the Cook County Medical examiner’s office. The older man has not yet been identified.
No one was in custody.
