He was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 11:14 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office, who identified him as Damien Clayton of the 7700 block of South South Shore Drive.

A 47-year-old man was also wounded, authorities said. He was taken in serious condition to Roseland Community Hospital, Alheim said.
