From Fox Chicago:
Two men were killed and four were wounded in a shooting Sunday afternoon in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side, according to Chicago Police.

At 4:33 p.m., they were standing in a group in the 3500 block of West Van Buren when a white, four-door sedan pulled up and multiple people got out and started shooting, according to Chicago Police. The vehicle might have been a Chevrolet Impala.

Two of the men, ages 27 and 23, were shot in the chest and taken to Stroger Hospital, where they were pronounced dead just after 5 p.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office, police said.
