Two people were shot to death and another critically wounded in a drive-by shooting in Austin on the West Side.

A man in his 20's and a woman, 29, were traveling south in the 200 block of South Cicero Avenue about 11:15 p.m. Friday when someone in a beige SUV drove up next to them and a person inside began shooting, Chicago police said.

The man was shot in the head, armpit and thigh. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died, police said.
