Two cousins shot, one fatally, in the Englewood neighborhood late Saturday were among at least nine people shot in Chicago from about 8 p.m. Saturday to about 8 a.m. Sunday.

The two men were driving in a Chevrolet Equinox, heading south in the 4900 block of Ashland Avenue about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. By the time they turned left at West 63rd Street, two people with guns got out of their own SUV and opened fire, according to a Chicago police media notification.

The passenger, who was 32, was shot multiple times and suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body, according to the police account.

He later was pronounced dead at a hospital, said Officer Jennifer Bryk, a police spokeswoman.

The other man, the driver, is 27 and the cousin of the man who died, police said. He was shot in the hand, which gave him a graze wound, officials said. He was in good condition at Stroger Hospital, according to a statement from the Chicago police.
