Shooting in Bronzeville leaves 1 dead, 1 wounded

CHICAGO - Two men were reportedly shot in the Bronzeville neighborhood this afternoon. One of the men died and one was wounded.



There were conflicting reports in the immediate aftermath but police said the incident occurred at approximately 4:36 p.m. in the 0-100 block of E. 43rd Street near the intersection where E. 43rd Street meets S. Wabash Avenue.

Police said a male victim, who at this time all police know is that he's in his 20s, was in a vehicle when he sustained a gunshot wound to the right flank by an unknown offender. After he was shot, the victim’s vehicle hit two other vehicles in traffic before finally coming to a stop. The victim was pronounced on scene approximately 15 minutes later.

No other injuries were reported from that accident and scene. Two firearms were recovered.

Authorities later updated that there was a second victim.

A 21-year-old male reportedly was also shot and knocked on a woman's door for help. The woman originally drove the 21-year-old to St. Bernard Hospital where he was discovered to have multiple gunshot wounds. They made the decision to then transport him to the University of Chicago Hospital (which has a Level 1 Trauma Center) with a reported gunshot wound to the left arm and the torso.

Area One Detectives are investigating. There is no one in custody.
