CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Chicago police are investigating an Old Town shooting that left one man dead and another hurt. They were shot after 6 p.m. Tuesday night near Goethe and North Sedgwick.

TyShawn Blanton, 31, was shot multiple times and died at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center at 7:05 p.m,, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. An autopsy for Blanton, of the 1300 block of North Halsted Street, is scheduled for Wednesday.

Police said a 20-year-old man suffered gunshot wounds to the back, and was taken in critical but "stable" condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

According to investigators, both men had gang affiliations.

A relative of one of the victims told DNAinfo.com that if officers lived in the neighborhood, they would care more to stop the growing violence there.

No arrests have been made as Area North detectives investigate.

The death will be the 14th homicide of 2013, pending the results of an autopsy. Additionally, Chicago Police have fatally shot one person this year.
