SHARE Neighbor shocked following shooting death of person found in Garfield Park alley


A person was found dead in an alley after being shot in the Garfield Park neighborhood late Wednesday night, police said.

Lewis Page, 62, was in the 2700 block of West Wilcox Street shortly after 10:20 p.m. when someone fired shots, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Police responding to shots found Page in an alley with six gunshot wounds to the torso. They were taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital and later pronounced dead there, police said.

Dannielle Kelly, who lives nearby, said she was awoken with sirens that night, and when she looked out of her window, she saw the body lying on the pavement.

“I just noticed they had white shoes on,” she said.

She said she did not hear any gunshots before the authorities showed up.

“It was shocking. It was just awful to see,” Kelly said.

No one is in custody.
