Two men killed in double homicide in North Lawndale

NORTH LAWNDALE, Chicago - Two men are dead this morning after they were both found shot in the head in the North Lawndale neighborhood, authorities said.

Around 4:00 a.m. this morning, police were called to the 1300 block of S. Harding Avenue in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the city's west side. Once there, police say they found two men with gunshot wounds to their head.

The first, a 30-year-old man, was found in front of the residence on the above block. The second, a 31-year-old man, was found inside. Both of the men were taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Area Four Detectives are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding this incident. While not definitive, they did describe both of the men as "victims" rather than leaving open the suspicion that one could have been an offender.

There is no one in custody.
