A man was shot to death, and another wounded, early Sunday in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

About 2:40 a.m., the men were standing on the street in the 6400 block of South Bell Avenue when someone in a light-colored SUV fired shots, Chicago police said.

Jeffrey Jackson, 41, was shot in the head and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the same neighborhood.

A 38-year-old man was taken to the same hospital with a gunshot wound to the left leg, police said. His condition had stabilized.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released details about the death.

Area Central detectives were investigating.
