Man killed in robbery before police-involved shooting identified

A man was killed and two other people were wounded after an armed robbery attempt led to a police-involved shooting late Thursday in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

About 11:55 p.m., officers were on patrol near the 7900 block of South Justine when they saw two males in an alley approached by two others who announced a robbery, Chicago Police said in a statement.

The two robbers shot the two other males, then ran off as officers approached, police said.

The officers pursued one male who turned and pointed a dark object in their direction. One officer then shot the male, police said.

The male was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious condition, according to Fraternal Order of Police Spokesman Pat Camden.

The other robbery suspect ran off and was not in police custody as of Saturday, police said. No officers were injured.

Tepete Davis, 42, was shot during the robbery and was also taken to Christ Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 1:08 a.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Davis died from multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.

The other male shot during the robbery suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and was also taken to Christ Medical Center, where he was listed in good condition, Camden said.

The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating the shooting.
