CHICAGO (WLS/CNN) - One Chicago teen is dead and another injured after a suspect shot them on Monday at a bus stop. The stop is located near a charter school where both victims are students. 

Surveillance video shows them all walking together before the incident. 

"Shortly after 9 a.m. today, we had a shooting which stemmed from a verbal argument. The shooting appears to be amongst individuals that know each other,” said Chicago officer Kevin Navarro. “We have one 18-year-old victim that is dead, and one 17-year-old victim that is shot in the leg. This shooting had no connection to the YCCS school, which is located right at 4909, is it?, 4909 West Division street. So, there was no connection to the school whatsoever at this time." 

Police have not identified the suspect or made an arrest. The shooter is described as a black male in a red jacket. 

The 18-year-old died at the hospital, WLS reported.  The school instructs about 100 students ages 16 to 21, who are considered at-risk but who are working to earn their high school degrees and gain vocational training, WLS said. 

There have been 637 homicides so far in Chicago in 2017, according to a Chicago Tribune running total. The total for 2016 was 792, the Tribune says.
