Chicago police are seeking the public’s help to find a man wanted for a fatal shooting in West Town on New Year’s Day.

Jimmy Chamberlain, 31, is wanted in connection with the shooting death of 38-year-old Austin McAllister in the 2100 block of West Division Street, police said.

McAllister and another man, 26, were shot inside a business around 1:30 a.m. on New Year’s Day. The other man was shot in the calf and taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition.

The shooting occurred at Lyon’s Den Hookah Lounge, prompting 2nd Ward Alderman Brian Hopkins to call for the closure of the business. Police Supt. David Brown decided against it in January.

“I’m the one who submitted a request for a summary closure — and in this particular case I disagree with the superintendent’s judgement, respectfully,” Hopkins said at a January community meeting to address violence in the area.

Anyone with information should call 911, police said.
