CHICAGO - Authorities said two men shot and killed each other Saturday afternoon in the Englewood neighborhood.

The encounter happened just after 5:00 p.m. on the 5500 block of S. Bishop Street in the Englewood neighborhood on the city's south side.

Police said two men, age 29 and 38, confronted each other on the sidewalk, they both pulled pistols, and each fired shots at the other.

Both of the mutual combatants were taken to University of Chicago Hospital where they were pronounced dead. The 29-year-old was dead from a single gunshot wound to the chest, while the 38-year-old died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Though Area Detectives continue to investigate, the incident is believed to be related to the illicit drug business.
