One man died and another man was wounded this morning in a West Side shooting incident that Chicago police investigators are still trying to make sense of.

Both men were brought by friends to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park at about 3:20 a.m.

One of the victims, later identified by the Cook County medical examiner's office as Tyrone Morris, 21, of the 500 block of Leamington Avenue, was pronounced dead at the hospital. He was shot four times, authorities said, three times in the chest and once in the armpit.

The second man, 20, suffered a wound to the elbow and a graze wound to his back, police said, citing early reports. He was listed in good condition, police said.

Investigators were able to determine that the shooting happened in the 5100 block of West Kinzie Street in the South Austin neighborhood, but little else because the 20-year-old man wouldn't cooperate with authorities, police said.
