A man was fatally shot while riding a bicycle Wednesday in Fernwood on the South Side.

Desmond Mannie was on his bike about 9:20 p.m. in the 700 block of West 99th Street when someone fired shots from a dark-colored Buick Riviera, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Mannie was hit multiple times, police said. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead.

At 99th Street, a bicycle lay at the mouth of an alley alongside a couple of grocery bags.

An elderly woman approached and let out a scream after seeing the bike. She was rushed away by a man who was with her after officers on the scene said they did not know the man’s identity.

No arrests have been reported. Area South detectives are investigating.
