4 shot in Uptown drive-by, steps from where man was killed last month

Three men and a 16-year-old were shot Monday evening on the same Uptown street corner where a man was killed in a double-shooting last month, according to Chicago police and witnesses.

Police said the four victims were standing on the 4500 block of North Sheridan when someone fired shots at them from inside a vehicle around 7:09 p.m. According to a witness at the scene, a passing vehicle was also struck by gunfire, but the occupants were not injured.

Three victims were shot in the buttocks — a 16-year-old boy, a 19-year-old man, and a 26-year-old man. A 31-year-old man was shot in the shoulder, police said. According to police, all of the victims were listed in good condition except the 26-year-old, who was in serious condition.

Cops searched the area for a white Dodge Durango that sped north on Sheridan after the shooting. The suspected gunman, a Black male wearing all black clothing and white shoes, was believed to be in the vehicle.

Monday’s shooting unfolded outside a newly-constructed high-rise, about 50 feet from where two men were shot in a drive-by on July 20. Jarid Jefferson, 20, died from wounds he received in that shooting, and a 19-year-old was injured.

No arrests have been made in either shooting.

Twelve people have been shot in Uptown so far this year, compared to nine during the same period last year and ten in 2019.
