A motorist was killed and his passenger injured in a shooting that ended with their vehicle slamming into a Chicago Transit Authority bus on the city's South Side, police said today.

The men, ages 22 and 19, were wounded near the 6800 block of South Calumet Avenue in the Park Manor neighborhood at about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday, police said, citing early reports.

Police said the gunman approached the vehicle and opened fire, hitting the 22-year-old man in the chest and grazing the younger man.

While attempting to flee, the vehicle sped off and crashed into the bus on South Calumet, police said.

The 22-year-old man, Darius Sarley, of the 1500 block of West 71st Street, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. An autopsy is scheduled for later today.

The younger man was also taken to Northwestern for treatment.

The bus' driver was also taken to an area hospital, but for non-serious injuries, police said.

No arrests had been made.
