Man fatally shot in South Commons

A 20-year-old man was fatally shot Thursday afternoon in the South Commons neighborhood.

About 3:35 p.m., Darian Gunn was standing in the street in the 3000 block of South Michigan Avenue when a gunman inside a dark-colored car opened fire, striking him in the back and buttocks, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The car then continued eastbound on Cermak Road, police said.

Gunn was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he died at 4:13 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the 2300 block of East 70th Street.
