A man was fatally shot Sunday afternoon in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, one day after a man was killed on the same block.

Terrance Hampton, 31, was found lying on the street about 2:35 p.m. in the 4000 block of West Monroe Street, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

He was shot in the chest and neck, and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

On Saturday, 30-year-old Omar Polk was shot and killed at the same location, authorities said. Officers found him unresponsive with a gunshot wound around 5:10 a.m., police said. He was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital and pronounced dead.

No arrests were reported in either shooting.
