Two men were fatally shot Tuesday morning in Englewood on the South Side.

About 2:30 a.m., they were sitting in a parked vehicle in the 7300 block of South Stewart Avenue, when someone fired into the vehicle and fled in a red SUV, Chicago police said.

The two men attempted to drive off and struck several parked cars, police said. A 31-year-old man was struck in the armpit and a man, whose age is unknown, was struck in the head and pronounced dead at the scene.


The 31-year-old was brought to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not yet identified the men.
