One man is dead and another is in critical condition following a shooting in West Rogers Park on Tuesday afternoon, Chicago police said.

The men, both estimated to be about 18-years-old, were inside a Toyota SUV in the 2500 block of West Estes when someone opened fire on them around 4:40 p.m., according to CPD. The shooting scene is across the street from Indian Boundary Park.

EMS took the surviving victim to St. Francis Hospital with a gunshot wound to his face.

A third man inside the SUV managed to flee without being hurt. After reaching safety, he dialed 911.

Investigators believe the gunman escaped in a 2020 Kia that was reported stolen from the Morgan Park neighborhood shortly before the shooting. It was last seen heading north on Rockwell with at least one occupant other than the gunman.

Officers recovered a firearm at the scene and shell casings were found inside the victims’ SUV. Police were still working to identify the victims.
