A 35-year-old man was shot and killed in a drive-by attack Sunday afternoon in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
Javier Aponte was walking about 4:50 p.m. in the 4000 block of West 24th Street when a gray pickup truck drove by and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Aponte was shot in his neck and back and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died about an hour later, authorities said. He lived in the North Lawndale community.
