A man was shot to death Friday evening in the Lawndale neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

About 7 p.m., 30-year-old Kennedy Blount was walking in the 1600 block of South Homan when someone got out of a gray Jaguar and opened fire, Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

Blount was shot in the head and right arm and later died at Mount Sinai Hospital, authorities said. He lived in the Austin neighborhood.

The shooter got back into the Jaguar and drove south on Homan, police said. No one was in custody Friday night as Area Central detectives investigated.
