CHICAGO - Authorities reported two men were shot and killed in two separate shooting incidents Monday morning. The locations of the shootings are approximately two miles apart and occurred twenty minutes from each other.



The first incident occurred at approximately 11:27 a.m. in the 4900 block of W. Walton Street in the Austin neighborhood on the city's west side.

Police said a 24-year-old male was at a building on the above block when unknown offenders driving a white SUV allegedly approached the victim and fired shots in his direction. The victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds throughout the body and was pronounced dead on scene.

The second homicide occurred about two miles away and twenty minutes later, at approximately 11:47 a.m., in the 3700 block of W. Chicago Avenue in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.
