A teenage boy was killed Sunday evening in a Lawndale neighborhood drive-by shooting on the West Side.

Jaquarius Davis, 16, was standing outside at 7:23 p.m. when a red four-door car drove up in the 1200 block of South Avers and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Davis was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:56 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the same neighborhood as the shooting.
