CHICAGO (CBS) -- A 26-year-old man is dead, after police said he was part of a group that fired shots from a car on the Southeast Side, at a group of men who fired back.

At 5:45 p.m. Sunday, the man was driving south in the 9700 block of South Avenue L with three other men, and the group in the car started shooting at another group of men on a porch.

The man was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

A teenage boy was also taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital for a laceration.
