Chicago police said two people were shot at the Church's Chicken in the city's West Garfield Park neighborhood Monday afternoon.

Just after 5 p.m. a 26-year-old man and a 49-year-old man were in the 0-100 block of South Pulaski when a silver sedan drove by and someone inside opened fire and then drove off, police said.

The 26-year-old was shot in the leg and taken to Stroger Hospital in stable condition. The 49-year-old was taken to Stroger as well, where he was pronounced dead.

The victim's family identified him as Maurice Robinson, and said he was a kind-hearted jokester who liked to hang out at that Church's Chicken restaurant. His fiancee said she's known him since she was 13 years old, and described him as a kind man.

Maurice Robinson, 49, was killed Nov. 20, 2017 in a shooting at Church's Chicken in the Chicago's West Garfield Park neighborhood.



Church's Chicken released a statement, saying, "Church's Chicken is working closely with the Chicago Police Department concerning this on-going investigation. However, we cannot comment on any specifics related to the case at this time because it could compromise the investigation."

Area North detectives are investigating.
