The older man was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center at 3:38 p.m., while the younger man — who, according to data from the Cook County medical examiner’s office was 19, not 20 — was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:24 p.m.
Between 6 and 9 p.m. Saturday there were two separate attacks that each left three people shot, one fatally, according to authorities.
Those six people, including the two who died, were among a total of 14 people shot in less than 14 hours, beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, police said. Three of the 14 people died.
