Man killed in car containing girl in Humboldt Park neighborhood shooting

A 28-year-old man was shot and killed Friday evening in the Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side.

About 7 p.m., Rolando Leon was inside a vehicle in the 1300 block of North Springfield, when at least one person walked up and fired shots, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 7:23 p.m., authorities said. Leon lived in the 1200 block of North Springfield.

A child was also in the vehicle at the time of the shooting, but was not injured, police said. Television news stations reported that the child was 3-years-old.

Police said the man was a documented gang member. An autopsy was scheduled for Saturday.

The killing was among two overall deaths and at least four others who were wounded in shootings across Chicago in less than six hours Friday evening.
