Girl Killed, Man Injured In Lake Shore Drive Shooting Overnight

A 15-year-old girl was killed and a 28-year-old man was injured in a shooting on Lake Shore Drive this morning. No one is in custody.

The man—with a gunshot wound to his left arm and a graze wound to his head—drove himself and the girl to St. Joseph’s Hospital around 1:30AM.

Doctors transferred the girl to Illinois Masonic Medical Center where she was pronounced dead with gunshot wounds to her side and arm at 3AM, according to police.

Investigators are not sure about where the shooting occurred, but they are currently using an address of approximately 3800 N. Lake Shore Drive because the man told them that he was driving past Recreation Drive when another vehicle pulled up next to him and opened fire.

An independent witness reported seeing five shots fired in traffic from a vehicle into a blue SUV near Recreation Drive a few minutes before the man arrived at St. Joe’s in a Jeep Cherokee, according to a police source.

The incident is believed to be gang-related.

Police records show that the male victim has been arrested twice this month for traffic violations—once in the Austin neighborhood and once in Humboldt Park. He lists multiple home addresses.

    1. This is true one female officer got to take this whole week off somehow? While we all have to work the entire weekend which we all would rather be with our families.
      It's a joke what goes on here and what some get away with all the time.
      Be safe everyone busy weekend

  3. The couple was probably driving back to Hollywood Beach because they left their portable wine cooler behind. Sarcasm helps slog through the stupidity of our dying society.
