A teenage boy was shot to death Monday while riding in a stolen vehicle in Roseland on the South Side.

Jaykuan Rogers, 15, and two other people were driving a stolen Jeep about 9 p.m. when someone shot at them from a passing white pickup truck in the 11400 block of South Lowe Avenue, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Rogers was struck in the head, while a 20-year-old man was struck in the back, police said. They were both taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where Rogers was pronounced dead few hours later. The 20-year-old was in critical condition, police said.

An autopsy released Tuesday found Rogers died from multiple gunshot wounds to his head, the medical examiner’s office said.

The third person in the stolen vehicle, a 17-year-old boy, was taken in for questioning, police said.

No one is in custody as Area South detectives investigate.
