Man Wanted for Murder in Humboldt Park Shooting

(Sun Times Wire) A man is wanted for murder in a Humboldt Park shooting last month that killed a man and critically wounded a woman.

Lee Davis, 23, has an active arrested warrant in the shooting death of 34-year-old Neal David Sumrell, according to Chicago police and Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Davis allegedly approached Sumrell and the woman on Aug. 23 in the 4200 block of Iowa Street, authorities said. He fired several shots, striking Sumrell seven times and the woman three times.

Both were taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where Sumrell was pronounced dead, authorities said. The 28-year-old woman — struck once each in the chest, back and arm — was listed in critical condition.

Davis’ warrant was issued Aug. 27 by a Cook County judge, according to court records. His criminal history includes a 2014 conviction for unauthorized use of a weapon. He was sentenced to 6 months in prison, but was released after receiving credit for time served. Davis then served 18 months of probation, which court records show he completed unsatisfactorily.

Police said that Davis is considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached. Anyone with information was asked to call 911 or Area North detectives at 312-744-8261.
