Cops detangling double-shooting that left man dead in reported robbery

Update: Sunday night, the Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the deceased victim as Adan Delgado, 27, of West Town.

Homicide detectives are working to untangle a shooting that left one person dead and another injured near Goose Island early Sunday.

A 28-year-old man told police that a gunman shot him in the leg during a robbery attempt on the 1200 block of West Fry around 4:30 a.m., according to a CPD media statement. The victim said he ran from the scene and then heard several gunshots behind him, according to the statement, which cited preliminary information.

Police found an unidentified man lying dead with multiple gunshot wounds on the 1200 block of West Fry.

But there may be a little more to the story.

When the victim called for an ambulance from his nearby apartment, he reportedly told the operator that his friend shot him in the leg during a robbery attempt.

And, a source said, investigators found a handgun near the dead man’s body.

An ambulance transported the surviving man to Stroger Hospital in good condition.

Sunday’s shooting incident is the second to be reported in the area since late Thursday night.

In the earlier case, a 32-year-old man told police he was driving when a silver SUV pulled up alongside him as he waited for the light to change on Division Street at the Kennedy Expressway around 11:35 p.m. Someone fired shots from inside the SUV, striking the victim’s minivan twice. One round entered the victim’s leg, police said.

Area Three detectives are investigating both cases.
