A 38-year-old man was killed and a 17-year-old girl injured in a shooting Monday night in the West Side's South Austin neighborhood, police said.
About 10:35 p.m. in the 5800 block of West Superior Street, two males approached a silver 2000 Ford Taurus that the man and the girl were sitting in, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.
One of the males opened fire, with bullets striking the man near the armpit and grazing the girl in the buttocks. The 38-year-old man was behind the wheel of the Taurus, according to News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli, and he tried driving away after he was shot, but crashed.
Both victims were taken to West Suburban Medical Center, where the man was pronounced dead at 11 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
The medical examiner's office identified him as Sherman Horton, of the 5900 block of West Superior Street.
The girl was listed in good condition.
At the scene of the shooting, passing cars slowed as drivers and occupants peered past yellow crime scene tape.
Near the middle of the block, detectives searched for evidence near a dark-colored SUV protruding onto the grass between the sidewalk and the street. The passenger's side door of a nearby silver sedan remained ajar.
No one is in custody and a motive was not available, Mirabelli said.
In other shootings Monday:
- A teenage boy was shot and wounded about 1:55 p.m. in the 7300 block of South Sangamon Street, said News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala. The boy, 17, was shot in the right calf.
- In the 2000 block of West 68th Street, a 26-year-old man was shot in the back at 4:51 p.m., Zala said.
Zala had no information about what happened in either of the shootings or where either victim was taken for treatment.
