SHARE Man dies day after Uptown shooting

A shooting Monday afternoon in the Uptown neighborhood left one man dead and another person wounded.

Oduro Yeboah, 22, was driving in the 4700 block of North Clarendon about noon when three people who were walking nearby approached his vehicle and opened fire, authorities said.

Yeboah, of the 800 block of West Belle Plaine, was shot in the head and subsequently crashed the car, police said. He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 6:26 a.m. Tuesday.

Another person, whose age and gender were not available, suffered a graze wound in the shooting and was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital, police said.

The circumstances surrounding the second person shot were not immediately available, but police said both shootings were connected.

Police said the shooting does not appear to be random, and is thought to be gang-related.
