A man was killed and another wounded in a shooting Tuesday night in the Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side.

Three people got out of a dark sedan and began shooting at the two men who were standing on a sidewalk in the 500 block of East 79th Street just after 8 p.m., Chicago police said.

Shawn Marinez Butler, 28, was shot multiple times throughout his body and was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he died, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

The other man suffered gunshot wounds to the arm and leg and was taken in fair condition to the same hospital, police said.

No one was reported in custody.
