CHICAGO (STMW) – A man was killed and seven others were wounded in a drive-by shooting Saturday on Chicago’s West Side that the police said was gang-related.
A 72-year-old woman was among the wounded, according to the police, who said she was shot in an ankle and was not among the most seriously injured.
The man killed, identified as 49-year-old Terry Patterson, was shot in the chest and groin and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:26 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
A detective on the scene said the shooting was gang-related, apparently related to a shooting on July 4.
This time, whoever pulled the trigger sprayed bullets across what appeared to be a large area. Yellow evidence markers stretched across an area of more than a block.
The shooting happened just before 6 p.m. on West Flournoy Street at South Francisco Avenue.
