A 60-year-old man was also killed on his way to work Wednesday morning, according to his family.
Then around 8:50 p.m., police say a 24-year-old black male was standing on the sidewalk on the 9100 block of South Emerald when someone in a dark-colored sedan fired shots, striking him in the head and back. He was pronounced dead at Christ Hospital.
