Two men were killed and another was wounded in an Edgewater neighborhood shooting early Sunday on the North Side.
Quentin Payton, 28, and a 32-year-old man were standing outside at 12:34 a.m. on the sidewalk in the 6300 block of North Broadway when someone in a dark-colored SUV opened fire, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Payton was shot in the head and taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was pronounced dead at 1:33 a.m., authorities said. He lived in the West Rogers Park neighborhood.
The 32-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the left leg and was also taken to Saint Francis, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
More than 30 minutes later, 22-year-old Chaz Johnson showed up at Community First Medical Center suffering from a gunshot wound to the left side of his torso, authorities said. He had been sitting in the back seat of a vehicle when he was shot and investigators eventually determined he was a third victim from the Edgewater incident.
Johnson, of north suburban Evanston, was later transferred to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he died at 8:43 a.m., authorities said.
“Shots were exchanged between an individual associated with a private bus that had stopped and an occupant from a dark-colored SUV,” Ald. Harry Osterman (48th) said in a statement about the shooting.
“Chicago Police are investigating this incident, interviewing witnesses and reviewing video footage,” Osterman added. “Police believe this to be an isolated incident and no members of the community are at risk.”
