Gunfire on the city's West Side killed one young man and wounded two others late Sunday night. The families and friends of the victims comforted each other after learning what had happened.

Police say the victims were playing a game on the sidewalk near the corner of South Saint Louis and Lexington when three men confronted them and began to shoot. It's unclear exactly what may have sparked the gunfire.

The 18-year-old man was pronounced dead on the scene.

The two wounded victims were rushed to the hospital. They are expected to be OK.
