Man shot to death in Kenwood

A man was shot to death in the Kenwood neighborhood Monday night on the South Side.

Tyris R. Jackson, 35, was walking in the 4900 block of South Drexel about 8:30 p.m. when a white SUV approached and the front passenger exited the vehicle, produced a handgun and fired multiple shots, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. The shooter then jumped back into the SUV, which sped away northbound.

Jackson, who lived on the same block as the shooting, suffered gunshot wounds to the back and arm, authorities said.

He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:04 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said.
