SHARE Man killed, teenager critically wounded in South Lawndale shooting

A South Side man shot early Monday in the South Lawndale neighborhood — one of two people critically wounded in the shooting — died Tuesday afternoon.

Oscar Rodriguez, 22, and a 17-year-old boy were sitting on a porch about 2:50 a.m. in the 4300 block of West 25th Place, when two people got out of a vehicle nearby and started shooting, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Rodriguez, of the 4900 block of South Winchester, was shot in the head and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, authorities said.

He was pronounced dead at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, according the medical examiner’s office.

The teenager was shot in the arm, back and chest. He was also taken to Mount Sinai, where he was listed in critical condition, police said at the time.

Police said the shooting may be gang-related.

As of Tuesday evening, no one has been charged in connection with the shooting, police said.
