An 18-year-old man was shot to death and a 60-year-old man was wounded in a drive-by attack Tuesday night in the Lawndale neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

The men were walking at 9:34 p.m. in the 2200 block of South Kildare when a gray Jaguar drove by and someone inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

Lovell Grant was shot multiple times in the head and body and pronounced dead at the scene, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. The older man suffered a gunshot wound to the back and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition stabilized.

Area Central detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
