Today a man was fatally wounded in a noontime drive-by shooting in McKinley Park, police say.

A 35-year-old man, whose name hasn't been released, was traveling on foot in the 3300 block of South Damen Avenue at 12:15 p.m. today. A green SUV rolled up next to him and someone inside fired shots before fleeing, Chicago Police Department spokesperson Officer Thomas Sweeney told Chicagoist.

The man was hit in the neck. He was transported to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, and he was later pronounced dead. No one has been taken custody in the shooting.

Police told the Tribune that the shooting happened near a McKinley Park railroad viaduct, and the SUV fled south afterward.
