One man died and two other people, including a 12-year-old boy, were injured. The 12-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the groin and was taken to an area hospital, while another man suffered a gunshot wound. This man, 24-year-old, was shot in the abdomen and taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious condition.
They were waiting for the deceased 28-year-old inside the Starbucks when the shooting began. Police Town Hall District believes the shooting took place after a drug deal gone awry. The man who was killed and the shooter apparently were involved in a transaction at Wilson Avenue and Broadway, after which the victim ran into the Starbucks. The attacker, wore dark clothing and a mask and is still at large. A witness said the attacker used a small-caliber handgun. People carried the wounded boy and solicited a passing motorist to rush him to the hospital. “There was blood everywhere,” a woman witness said. No one was in custody. “As far as we can tell, this was not a random act,” police supposed. Additional details were unavailable, CBS Chicago says.
