CHICAGO (CBS) — A man and woman were shot Thursday night near the 79th Street CTA Red Line station on the city’s South Side, and the man died of his injuries.

The shooting happened around 9:35 p.m. at 79th Street and Lafayette Avenue, near the entrance to the Chicago Transit Authority station at the Dan Ryan Expressway.

Police said a 23-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman were standing outside when a man came up and shot them both.

The man was shot in the chest and was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center. The woman was shot in the arm and was taken to the same hospital in fair condition.
