CHICAGO (CBS) -- Two men were killed, when they apparently shot each other in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood Monday morning while one of the men was taking his son to school.

Police said a 31-year-old man was walking his son to school around 8:40 a.m., when a 24-year-old man started shooting near 62nd and Mozart.

The older man was shot three times in the chest and twice in the torso, police said. He was taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His son was not injured, and was able to run to get help.
