A man was killed and another was wounded Wednesday evening in south suburban Robbins.
Shortly before 6 p.m., authorities found 56-year-old William Dolehide near the intersection of 135th Street and St. Louis Avenue and a 51-year-old man near 135th and Pulaski Road, according to spokeswoman Sophia Ansari of the Cook County Sheriff’s Office and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Dolehide was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was later pronounced dead at 1:40 p.m., authorities said. The other man was also taken to Christ, and he was expected to live.
Two vehicles with shattered windows from bullet holes were part of a crime scene that spanned several blocks.
A firefighter also suffered multiple cuts to his hand and was taken to a hospital for treatment, fire officials said. He was later released.
The sheriff’s office continued to investigate the shooting Thursday night. Anyone who was in the area or has information about the shooting was asked to call the sheriff’s office at (312) 603-6444.
