Two men were killed in a shooting Thursday afternoon in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

Priest Young, 20, and 21-year-old Lovon Jordan were sitting in a vehicle about 4:10 p.m. when two people approached in the 4000 block of West Van Buren and fired shots, striking them both multiple times, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Jordan, of Maywood, was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. Young was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced at 4:44 p.m. He lived less than a mile from where he was fatally shot.

Area North detectives were investigating.
