About 12:25 a.m., 21-year-old Trevon Jefferies and another male were walking in the 2700 block of East 75th Street, Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. Someone drove up in a vehicle and fired shots, striking both of them.

The other person was shot in the hand, but refused medical attention, police said.
