CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man was killed and four other people were hurt in two shootings on the West Side Friday evening.

About 7:20 p.m., two men, ages 52 and 53, were standing in the alley in the 4300 block of West Jackson Boulevard, when a maroon-colored minivan pulled up alongside the two, police said.

A male in the van started talking to the two men, and eventually pulled out a handgun and opened fire, police said.

The 52-year-old was shot in the back and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he later died, police said. The Cook County Medical Examiner's office could not confirm the death early Saturday.

The 53-year-old was shot in the upper left thigh and also taken to Mount Sinai, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

Twenty minutes earlier, two 19-year-old men and a 16-year-old boy were standing on the street in the 200 block of South Western Avenue when a silver Pontiac pulled up and someone inside pulled out a handgun and opened fire, police said.

One 19-year-old was shot in the right foot, the other was shot in the left leg and the 16-year-old was shot in the right foot, police said.

Police said all three were taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where they were each listed in "stable" condition.

However, Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said one of the victims was in serious-to-critical condition while the other two were in fair-to-serious condition.

Police said the shooting may have been gang-related.

No one is in custody for either shooting as area detectives investigate.
