"BANG. HEAVAN."—Man Shot Dead On Lake Shore Drive

A 25-year-old Brighton Park man was shot dead as he drove south on Lake Shore Drive at Fullerton this morning.

Navarro | Illinois Dept of Corrections
The man has been identified by a police source as Jorge Navarro, who was paroled last September after serving part of a 3-year sentence for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in a vehicle, according to state records.

Navarro’s Lexus struck the center median and crashed after the 3:45 a.m. shooting.

A male passenger in Navarro’s car called 911 to report that shots were fired from a passing vehicle and that his friend, Navarro, “isn’t waking up.” That man and a female were not injured, police said.

Navarro is a documented gang member who was arrested last month for aggravated assault of a state employee.

According to prison admission records, Navarro sports a number of tattoos including several 5-point stars. His right hand was emblazoned with the words “Motivation,” “Family,” “Bang,” and “Heavan.”

  3. Serious question, if he was on parole and arrested for assault last month, why wasn't he sent back to prison? I guess all's well that ends well.

  4. Biggest impact he had in life was on traffic this morning on Lake Shore Drive..., and he screwed that up big time.

  6. A gang member actually hitting their intended target? That's even more shocking than the Lake Shore Drive part.

  7. I suppose we should be relieved it was not a random killing.
