SHARE Man killed, woman wounded in South Shore shooting

A man was killed and a woman was wounded in a shooting Sunday morning in the South Shore neighborhood.

The pair was standing outside at 10:27 a.m. on the sidewalk in the 2600 block of East 75th Street when another male walked up, pulled out a handgun and fired shots, according to Chicago Police.

The 28-year-old man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the head and back and was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:36 a.m., police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. His identity was not released Sunday night, pending notification of his family.

The 26-year-old woman was shot in the lower back and taken in serious condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said.
