CHICAGO (CBS) — Two men were killed, and another was critically hurt after they were shot while standing outside a restaurant in South Chicago early Saturday morning.

The shooting happened around 2 a.m. in the 2500 block of East 83rd Street near the New Look restaurant.

Chicago police said a 42-year-old man was hit in the neck and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other victim, also 42, was shot twice in the chest. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition.

Another man, identified as 36-year-old Quintrel M. Jemison by the Medical Examiner's Office, suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and was found in the 8300 block of South Colfax Avenue, where he was pronounced dead.  

At least 37 evidence markers were at the scene.

No arrests were made.

On Saturday afternoon, the windows and front door of the New Look restaurant were boarded up. A notice posted on a wood panel said the business presents a danger to the public. The restaurant was closed by the order of the superintendent of police.

CBS 2 reached out to the owner of the building Saturday afternoon who said he'd been in touch with detectives but didn't know much more about the shooting.

Area 2 detectives were investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
