Two men were fatally shot in the Pilsen neighborhood early Saturday.

Johnathan Ramirez, 18, and Santos Bueno, 22, were sitting inside a vehicle parked in the 1000 block of West 18th Street when a gunman walked up and opened fire about 1:30 a.m., authorities said.

Ramirez, of an unidentified home address, and Bueno, of the 7900 block of South Kilpatrick Avenue, were each shot multiple times and died at the scene, authorities said.

Louis Patino said he was at a nearby party when the gunfire erupted.

A bunch of people were looking through the window and we all got curious,” Patino said. “They were just screaming, ‘Somebody got shot! Somebody got shot!’”

Nobody has been charged for the killings.

Area Central detectives are investigating if the shooting was gang related.
