SHARE Man, 29, shot to death in Fernwood restaurant

A man was fatally shot early Saturday while buying a meal inside a restaurant in the Fernwood neighborhood on the Far South Side.

About 1 a.m., 29-year-old Warrick Smith II was ordering food inside a restaurant in the 10200 block of South State Street when someone burst inside with a gun and opened fire, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Smith was shot in his chest and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died less than an hour later, authorities said. He lived in the same block where he was shot.

An autopsy Sunday found that Smith died from multiple gunshot wounds. His death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Area South detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
