Four men were shot and two of them died early Friday at a Washington Park neighborhood gas station on the South Side. The victims have been identified as Lavelle Cox and Jawon C. Carter, both 24.
Officers found the victims just before 2 a.m. in the foyer of the GoLo station in the 100 block of East 51st Street. Witnesses said a gray four-door Chevrolet pulled up and opened fire on the men before taking off north on Indiana Avenue.
Carter, of the Woodlawn neighborhood, was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:55 a.m., authorities said. Cox, of the Grand Boulevard neighborhood, was dead at the scene.
Both died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
A 25-year-old man was shot in both legs and grazed across the head. He was taken in serious condition to Stroger, along with a 64-year-old man who was stabilized with a gunshot wound to the leg, police said.
No one was in custody as Area Central detectives investigated.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay funeral expenses for Cox.
