Vester Ward was struck in the arm, back and leg, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Autopsy results released Friday ruled his death a homicide, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Ward lived in the Austin neighborhood.
A 23-year-old woman who was shot in the arm took herself to Stroger Hospital, where she was listed in good condition, police said.
