Two teens were killed in separate shootings Tuesday night on Chicago's South and Northwest Sides.
The first occurred about 9 p.m. in the 7700 block of South Carpenter Street.
The victim, identified as 15-year-old Marcus Washington, of the 7000 block of South Sangamon Street, was later pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office.
The second shooting took place in the 6100 block of West George Street about 10:20 p.m., claiming the life of 18-year-old Vladimir Hernandez.
He was sitting in a vehicle when a gold-colored auto pulled up alongside, police said, and someone opened fire on Hernandez before the car sped off, police said.
Hernandez, 18, of the 3300 block of North Kolmar Avenue, was pronounced dead at Our Lady of Resurrection Medical Center, the medical examiner's office spokesman said.
Police said that shooting may have been gang-related but could not say why this morning.
Police had no one in custody for either shooting, and further details of either incident were unavailable.
