Police are investigating after two men in their 20s were both killed following a drive-by shooting early Saturday morning in North Chicago.
The North Chicago Police Department responded around 3:30 a.m. Saturday to the 1000 block of Lincoln Street in North Chicago.
Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli said officers responded to a report of a shooting in an alleyway.
Police officers arrived and found two people shot. The North Chicago Fire Department was called to the scene.
One person, a 24-year-old man from North Chicago, was pronounced dead at the scene, Covelli said.
The second person, a 25-year-old man from North Chicago, was transported by ambulance to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
The North Chicago Police Department requested the assistance of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force.
A preliminary investigation shows both of the victims were outside in the alleyway.
An unknown vehicle drove into the alleyway and at least one of the occupants of the vehicle fired multiple shots toward the victims, striking them both, Covelli said.
Major Crime Task Force investigators and evidence technicians continue working with the North Chicago Police Department to investigate the incident.
