(STMW) – A man was killed and another was injured in a possible drive-by shooting in the Austin neighborhood Friday evening, police said.

The shooting happened at 8:13 p.m. in the 5200 block of West Quincy Street, police News Affairs Officer Stacey Cooper said.

One man, 32, was shot in the head and was dead at the scene, Cooper said. Another male, whose age was not yet known, was shot in the right arm and refused medical treatment.

The male injured in the arm is not cooperating with authorities, Cooper said. Police believe the shooting may have been a drive-by attack.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the fatality Friday night.
