One young man was killed and another wounded in a shooting Sunday morning in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.

Police were called at approximately 10:15 a.m. for the shooting in the 1100 block of North Keystone Avenue, according to police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.

Two young men, who are believed to be 17 and 21 years old, were shot at that location, Perez said.

The 21-year-old was dead on the scene, according to police. A spokeswoman for the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed a fatality at that location, but could not provide any details on the victim, pending notification of next of kin.

The younger victim was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where his condition was stable, according to police.

Area North detectives are investigating.
