One man was killed and another wounded in a North Lawndale neighborhood shooting Friday afternoon on the Southwest Side.

At 12:07 p.m., Dominick Black and another man were standing on the sidewalk in the 1500 block of South St. Louis when an SUV approached, and multiple people got out and opened fire, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The men, both 24 years old, were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, authorities said.

Black, whose home address was unknown, suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and legs and was pronounced dead at 6:51 p.m., authorities said. The other man was shot in the foot and wrist, and his condition was stabilized.

The suspects got back in the vehicle and took off after the shooting.
