Investigators say the men were getting into a truck when some people in an SUV pulled up and started shooting.

It happened around 6p.m. on Arcadia Terrace near Elmwood Street. It’s in a neighborhood just west of Rockford Memorial Hospital.

Officers say one of the men died at the hospital, the other is in critical condition.

One neighbor says it's a safe neighborhood and says the men who were shot have always been very friendly.

"They're good people and I’ve never had any problems with them before. They're really nice and they didn't deserve what happened to them," Cydney Bagwell, a neighbor of the victim, said.

At this point police don't have a reason for the shooting but are looking for two or three white men in a black Chevy Blazer.
