One man lay dead while another was taken to a hospital in serious condition following a Thursday night shooting in the West Englewood neighborhood, police said.

The shooting happened about 9:20 p.m. in the 6300 block of South Honore Street, said police News Affairs Officers Ron Gaines.

The men were sitting on a porch when a gunman walked up and fired shots, striking two men, police said. He fled the scene on foot.

A third person fled the scene after the shooting but was not injured, according to authorities.

No one was in custody late Thursday as Area South detectives investigated.
