Two men were killed and another was wounded in a shooting Sunday morning on the Eisenhower Expressway.

The men were traveling west on I-290 about 2:30 a.m. when someone fired shots at their car, causing the driver to crash near Kostner Avenue, Illinois State Police said.

Allante Williams, a 29-year-old man, suffered gunshot wounds and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, state police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Kenneth Owens, 30, was sitting in the back seat and suffered injuries from the crash. He was pronounced dead at the scene, state police said. Autopsy released Monday ruled his death a homcide.

The front-seat passenger, also 30, was transported to a hospital with injuries from the crash that were not life-threatening, according to state police.

All westbound lanes at Kostner Avenue were closed until 8:45 a.m.

No one was reported in custody.
