Chicago, IL (WGN) -- Two people were killed and three others were injured in a mass shooting on the South Side Sunday night.

Police say a group of people were standing on a front porch of a home in the 2000 block of West 68th Place in the city's West Englewood neighborhood.

Around 11:10 p.m., a car pulled up and someone got out and fired several shots at the group.

Two men were pronounced dead on the scene: A 37-year-old man who was shot in the head and a 26-year-old man who was shot in the chest.

The 37-year-old has been identified as Davon Barrett and the 26-year-old has been identified as Devin Hamb.

Two other men and a woman were injured and taken to area hospitals where they are in stable condition.

No suspects are in custody.

The gathering was a memorial for Martell Barrett, killed in 2009, who was the brother of Davon Barrett. Both brothers are now the victims of gun violence. A third brother, Cadavius Barrett, was also shot at a nightclub on 87th and Honore Sunday morning and is hospitalized in critical condition.

Six people were killed and 38 wounded in shootings this weekend.
