A man and 17-year-old boy were killed in a shooting that also left another teenager wounded last week in the Lawndale neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
Bruce Crosby, 20; and a 17-year-old girl were sitting in a vehicle about 2:20 p.m. on June 12 in the 1500 block of South Kildare when a dark SUV pulled up and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Crosby, who lived in the same neighborhood, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 3:21 p.m., police and the medical examiner’s office said.
The girl was shot in the abdomen and was also taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.
A 17-year-old boy, identified as Demonis Johnson, who was standing on the sidewalk when the shooting occurred, was also shot in the head, authorities said. He was taken to Mount Sinai, where he was pronounced dead at 11:57 a.m. on June 13. Johnson lived about a block away from the shooting.
A police source said investigators do not believe the teenage boy was an intended target of the shooting.
