    Two cousins were shot on Polk street.

    A gunman shot down two cousins on the West Side of Chicago last night in what appears to be a random act of violence.

    Percy Day, 17, and Tyrone Williams, 19, both college students were gunned down outside a two-flat on the 3700 block of West  Polk St. Saturday at 9:15 p.m, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Neither man survived.

    Family members who witnessed the shooting have no idea why it happened.

    "We saw him walking up the block, then he stopped a few houses down, turned and walked away," said Sharnia Goodman, who was Day's girlfriend.  "About ten minutes later he came back, the shooting started and everybody tried to run."

    Williams, a student the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, was home for the weekend to get an outfit to wear to a homecoming dance at the school,  Lanre Sanya, who is Percy's uncle and Tyrone's cousin told the Tribune.

    Day attended DeVry University, where he was in a program to get his high school diploma and an associate's degree.

    Police have not made any arrests and have no motive for the shooting.
