The victim in a fatal shooting outside an Auto Zone in south suburban Richton Park has been identified at Henry Bailey, 32.

Bailey, of the 100-block of North Campbell Avenue in Chicago, was shot and killed outside the store in the 3600-block of Sauk Trail around 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The Cook County medical examiner's office said Bailey was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another man was injured in the shooting and found at a nearby business. He was taken to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and is expected to survive.

A source said the shooting may have been in retaliation for another incident that took place earlier, but police have not confirmed that report. Richton Park is not known for gang activity or general violent behavior.

The South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force is investigating the shooting.
