ROSELAND — Marvin McFerren initially fled the scene after he was shot in the chest and arm at about 5 p.m. Oct. 2  in Roseland, police said.

McFerren, 43, of south suburb Matteson, Ill., was later dropped off at Roseland Community Hospital by an unknown individual, police said. He died a result of his gun shot wounds, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Police said another person was shot at the same time and location as McFerren in the 11400 block of South Yale Avenue.

That 31-year-old male sustained a gunshot wound to his shoulder and was transported to a hospital in stable condition, police said.

McFerren has a previous criminal record. He was sentenced to nine years in prison after being convicted of attempted murder in 1989, according to court records. He was also sentenced to five years for armed violence in 1996. He was convicted for multiple counts of possession of a controlled substance in the early 2000's, according to court records.

No arrests were made in the killing, police said.
