Berwyn man killed, another wounded in Little Village drive-by shooting

A drive-by attack killed one man and wounded another late Thursday in the Little Village neighborhood on the West Side.

Josue Roque, 22, and a 44-year-old were standing on a sidewalk at 11:08 p.m. in the 2600 block of South Kedvale when the ambush occurred, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Someone in a dark SUV shot Roque in the face and the 44-year-old in the buttocks and left hand, police said.

Roque, of suburban Berwyn, was taken to Mount Sinai hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. An autopsy Friday found he died of multiple shotgun wounds.

The other man sustained graze wounds and declined treatment on the scene, police said.

No one was in custody, and Area Central detectives were investigating the fatal shooting.
