Two men were shot near a Rogers Park elementary school Sunday night, making them the third and fourth persons shot in the neighborhood yesterday. One of the earlier shooting victims died.
The men, ages 20 and 24, were standing on the 1600 block of West Jonquil when someone opened fire shortly after 10 p.m., police said. Shell casings were found in Willye B. White Park and nineteen more casings were recovered from the parking lot of Gale Elementary Community Academy.
Witnesses said about eight vehicles were parked in the school lot at the time of the shooting, but they all drove away after the gunfire. Police said the gunman may have escaped in a black SUV.
Both victims transported themselves to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston for treatment, police said. The younger man is listed in good condition with a gunshot wound to his ankle. The other victim is in fair condition with two gunshot wounds to his legs and two more to his buttocks.
The older victim has been arrested 11 times in Chicago since 2014, most recently for felony cannabis distribution in Rogers Park two months ago.
Area Three detectives are investigating.
Just before 7 a.m. Sunday, 36-year-old Angelo Pullum was shot dead when a gunman fired one round into the back of his head on the 1400 block of West Lunt, according to police.
A 32-year-old woman was critically wounded about 90 minutes earlier in a shooting on the 1700 block of West Juneway.
No arrests have been made in those cases either.
