Chicago Police have asked the public to provide information in a pair of killings, Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said at a Monday news conference.
Detectives have few leads in the killing of a 50-year-old man who was struck by a bullet as he sat in his truck, heading to work, around 4:30 a.m. on July 31 in the 2600 block of West 23rd Place in Little Village. The man was in the truck with his son when the bullet “came down the block,” Deenihan said.
Area 4 detectives are investigating the shooting.
Police also are seeking tips in the fatal shooting of a 14-year-old who was gunned down as he sat in a car in the 1600 block of West Waseca Place in Morgan Park on the far South Side on July 29.
The teen was struck in the head by a gunshot fired by someone who was shooting from a car coming down the street, Deenihan said.
