A 50-year-old man was shot to death Thursday inside a restaurant in west suburban Berwyn.
The man was shot about 11:25 a.m. at Jelly Jam Restaurant, 6300 W. Cermak Rd., where he was a customer, according to Berwyn police. He was rushed to a local hospital for treatment but died shortly after.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the man as Clarence Hendrix, of Alsip. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide.
Witnesses told police the shooter was a slender, 5-foot-8 male wearing a black jacket with a white or light-colored hoodie underneath, along with dark pants and a purple face mask.
The shooter was last seen running north on Highland Avenue and west through a yard, and has not been taken into custody, police said.
Though an investigation into the shooting is ongoing, police said the attack appears to be an isolated incident.
