2 Dead, 3 Wounded in Shootings on Wednesday in Chicago

(Chicago Tribune) The drive was only 15 minutes, but Kita Brown felt like it lasted much longer.

Her anguished boyfriend sped from 55th Street to the 9600 block of South Euclid Avenue in Jeffery Manor after he got a call early Thursday that his cousin was shot on the Far South Side street.

Slowed by stoplights, they tried to reach the shooting as quickly as possible. Her boyfriend was frantic and crying, she said.

The cousin, a 41-year-old man, was shot in the head, torso and buttocks about 2:10 a.m., police said. He was pronounced dead on the scene. The man was in an alley when someone approached him and opened fire, according to police.

“This is pretty hard to watch,” said Brown, leaning on a tree in her pink Hello Kitty pajamas.

Investigators roped off the gangway between two brick houses. A path led behind the homes, where a car was parked on grass in a backyard.

Family members stood just outside the crime scene, hugging and crying as they watched investigators from a fence surrounding the backyard. They said he often parked in a backyard across the street from his home.

About two months earlier, the man was shot farther to the south, according to preliminary information from a law enforcement source.

The man’s wife sat on a chair on the stoop of their home across the street from the scene, rocking back and forth.

“He was a family man,” his relatives said. He also earned recognition for fixing cars around the neighborhood, they said.

The man was among two people killed and three wounded from Wednesday to early Thursday.

In an earlier homicide, a 19-year-old man was shot and killed Wednesday afternoon near Washington Park on the South Side, according to Chicago police.

The teen was shot in the head around 2:15 p.m. in the 5200 block of South Cottage Grove Avenue, police said. He was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

A woman at the scene asked an officer if the victim might be her son who was walking to catch a bus, but the officer said the teen was in a car with three other people.

Witnesses said he was sitting in a blue BMW when a car pulled up and someone inside fired.

“It weighs on me a lot,” said Rita Tabb, a woman who has lived in nearby Hyde Park for two years. “I feel like this area’s safe but you gotta watch your surroundings now.”
Tabb was meeting her 12-year-old daughter on the corner where the shooting happened. Tabb said she regularly meets her at the intersection. She attends Kozminski Community Academy a few blocks away.

Another passerby noted that tents for the UniverSoul Circus were set up a block away, drawing even more children to the area at the time of the attack.

“It kind of concerned me because you got the circus right there and it’s daylight,” said the woman, who did not want to be identified. “But it’s not even about it happening here. If you’re a target, you can be over by Obama. They don’t care about people out at circuses, kids at school. They just trying to get who they get and go on.”
In other shootings:

• Around 6:10 p.m. Wednesday on the Soutwest Side, a 19-year-old man was shot in the right leg in the 6300 block of South Lawler Avenue in the Chrysler Village neighborhood, police said.

• Around 3:15 p.m., an 18-year-old man was shot while walking down the street in the Little Village neighborhood, police said. Two people approached the 18-year-old and one of them pulled a gun and fired at him in the 2200 block of South California Avenue, police said. The teen was struck in the buttocks and thigh, and he was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
