One man is dead and two others wounded after a gunman approached a car the men were sitting in and opened fire in the Humboldt Park neighborhood Sunday night, police said.

The three men, all in their late teens and early 20s, were in a beige Toyota Corolla in the 1600 block of Pulaski Road when an unknown gunman approached the car and opened fire, striking all three, police said of the 10:10 p.m. shooting.

A friend drove the victims to nearby Norwegian American Hospital, but the men were transferred to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County for further treatment.

One of the men, believed to be in his late teens or early 20s, suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach and was pronounced dead at Stroger, police said.

The other two men, ages 19 and 25, were listed in “stable” condition, police said. One suffered gunshot wounds to shoulder and jaw, the other was shot in the back, police said.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
