A man believed to be in his mid-20’s was shot to death Sunday morning in Uptown. No one is in custody. The incident may be domestic-related, according to a police source.

Officers responded to calls of a person shot outside of the Wilson Yards senior housing complex at 1032 West Montrose around 6:50 a.m. A man found unresponsive with multiple gunshot wounds to his left side was pronounced dead upon arrival at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.


Witnesses said a man emerged from a car, fired three to five shots, and then drove away. The gunman is described as a slender black man who stands about 5’9” tall. Shell casings were found in the middle of Montrose.

Investigators are looking for a small black car with Michigan plates—possibly a Toyota Venza or a similar Volkswagen—which was last seen heading westbound on Montrose.

Minutes before the shooting, police received a call of a domestic altercation at Broadway and Montrose. The caller reported that his child’s mother had hit him and then drove away. Working on early reports from witnesses, police believe the incidents are related, a source said.
