They were in front of a residence about 2:15 p.m. in the 3900 block of South Princeton Avenue when a vehicle pulled up and someone inside unleashed gunfire, Chicago police said.

A 26-year-old was struck in the face and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Deandre Abrams.

The other man, 35, was shot in the leg and taken to the same hospital in good condition, police said.
