A 19-year-old man was shot to death Tuesday morning while riding a bicycle in the West Side Austin neighborhood.

Cashes McCree was riding in the 1500 block of North Lockwood about 9:30 a.m. when two gunmen walked up and opened fire, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

McCree was shot multiple times in the torso, and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:06 a.m., authorities said.

He lived less than a mile away in the 900 block of North Lockwood.
