SHARE Third man dies of injuries suffered in shooting last month in Roseland

A man died last week, nearly a month after a Roseland shooting that killed two other men, both of whom were driving home after registering for college.

Marquis Chamberlain, 19, was one of three people shot May 13 in the 200 block of West 107th Place, authorities said.

All three were in a vehicle about 8 p.m. when another vehicle pulled alongside and someone started shooting, police said.

Chamberlain, of the 11400 block of South Parnell, was shot in the chest and was initially taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said. He died Wednesday, June 10, at Kindred Hospital of complications from the gunshot wound, the medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled a homicide.

The other two men killed—Shamari Salter and Terrence Canady—were driving home from college registration at the time of the shooting, relatives told Homicide Watch Chicago.

The good friends, both 19, had planned to attend Parkland College in Champaign in the fall, relatives said.

Salter’s aunt, the Rev. Franshonn Salter, said she last saw her nephew at a birthday celebration for his brother, Shaquille Salter, who was fatally shot last Fourth of July weekend.

“[Shamari Salter] had a mind of his own,” Franshonn Salter said. “He wasn’t influenced by people — he influenced them.”

Franshonn Salter said her nephew, who had a 2-year-old daughter, was an aspiring musician.

No one was in custody for the shootings as of Monday afternoon.
