2 Women Killed, 1 Man Wounded in Gresham Shooting Friday

(Sun Times Wire) Two women were killed and one man was wounded in a shooting Friday in Gresham on the South Side.

Officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert about 9:58 p.m. in the 7500 block of South Stewart Avenue and found the women suffering from gunshot wounds, Chicago police said.

Witnesses told investigators that they were on the sidewalk when a blue SUV drove up, and someone inside fired shots before driving off on Stewart, police said.

Chantell Grant, 26, and 35-year-old Andrea Stoudemire were struck in the chest, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. They were pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Grant lived in Chatham and Stoudemire lived on the same block where she was shot, according to the medical examiner’s office. An autopsy conducted Sunday said Grant died of multiple gunshot wounds and Stoudemire died of a gunshot wound to the chest. Both were ruled homicides.

A 30-year-old man was hit in the arm, and he took himself to St. Bernard Hospital where his condition was stabilized, police said. Another man, 58, fell to the ground and suffered abrasions. He was taken to the same hospital in good condition.

No one is in custody as Area South detectives investigate.
