SHARE Man charged with fatal South Shore shooting that wounded two others

A man has been charged with a South Shore neighborhood shooting that left a man dead and two others wounded earlier this month.

Shawn Black, 26, faces one count of first-degree murder and two counts each of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm for the attack that happened about 9 a.m. on Sept. 2, Chicago Police announced Sunday morning.

The three victims were standing outside in the 2600 block of East 74th Place when Black walked up and started shooting, police said.

Vuan Evans, 25, was shot in the head and taken to South Shore Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:40 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Evans was from the 3100 block of South Cheltenham Place.

A 29-year-old man shot twice in the back and once in the chest was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition. A 50-year-old man who suffered a graze wound to the back was treated and released from Jackson Park Hospital, police said.

Black, who lives in the 2600 block of East 77th Street, is scheduled to appear in bond court Sunday afternoon.
