A man died after he was wounded in a double shooting early Sunday in Lawndale on the West Side.

The two men, 27 and 29, were outside about 2:40 a.m. in the 2900 block of West Congress Parkway when they heard shots and felt pain, Chicago police said.

The older man, identified as Michael Reed Jr., was shot in his chest and arm, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The 27-year-old was struck twice in the groin and once in the abdomen and went to the same hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

Police initially said the shooting happened on Harrison Street.

The pair were among at least 64 people shot in Chicago over the weekend.

No one was in custody Sunday morning.
