Two men were shot and killed at a West Side convenience store Tuesday night.

Two ambulances were sent at about 6:30 p.m. to the M and K Grocery, in the 3600 block of West Ohio Street, for a reported shooting, but nobody was transported to the hospital, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Quention Curtis said.

The store also has a restaurant and game area.  Neighbors say it was a popular hangout.  There are conflicting reports as to whether the shooting took place inside or outside the building.

A neighbor who didn't wish to be identified told NBC Chicago that the shooting could be gang retaliation from another shooting within the last month.

Police described the dead only as black males and did not have a description of the shooter as of Tuesday night.

"It has to stop.  From the neighbors and talking with them, [it's] all the drug trade gangs," said community activist Andrew Holmes.

Harrison Area detectives are investigating.  Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call police, even if they must do so anonymously.
