A man was killed and another man was seriously wounded in a drive-by shooting Monday night in University Village on the Near West Side.

The men, 24 and 56, were outside with a large group of people in the 1300 block of West 13th Street when two people in a passing black Hyundai Elantra fired at them about 11:10 p.m., Chicago police said.

The 56-year-old man was struck in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

He was identified as Darryl Willis by the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide.

The younger man was struck in the stomach and arm. He was taken to the UIC Hospital in serious condition, police said.

The 24-year-old, a concealed carry license holder, returned fire but it was unknown if either shooter was struck, police said. The car carrying the shooters crashed into a parked car, and the pair ran off.

No one was in custody.
