A man was shot to death Saturday night in Woodlawn on the South Side.

The 23-year-old was walking about 9:35 p.m. in the 6200 block of South Eberhart Avenue when someone fired shots, Chicago police said.

He was struck in the shoulder and collapsed to the ground, police said. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Walter D. Seamster. An autopsy conducted Sunday ruled his death a homicide.

No one is in custody as Area One detectives investigate.

Minutes earlier, a 17-year-old boy was critically hurt in a shooting in West Pullman. The teen was in a basement of a home with a group of people about 9:30 p.m. in the 12000 block of South Yale Avenue when someone opened fire, police said. He suffered two gunshot wounds to the head and was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
