Two men sitting in a parked vehicle Friday evening were shot, one of them fatally, in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.
A black car pulled up to the men at 8:20 p.m. in the 100 block of South Kildare Avenue and someone inside fired shots, Chicago police said.
Calvin Lewis, 35, was shot in the chest and neck and later died at Mt. Sinai Hospital, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
The other man, also 35, was struck in the groin and hip and taken to the same hospital, police said.
An autopsy found Lewis died from multiple gunshot wounds and ruled his death a homicide. Lewis lived in the East Garfield Park neighborhood, the medical examiner’s office said.
No one was in custody, police said.
