CHICAGO – A shooting on one of Chicago´s most fashionable streets Tuesday left one person dead and two others injured, according to authorities.
Two shooters jumped from separate vehicles and opened fire on a group of people standing outside shops on Oak Street, said Deputy Chief Daniel O´Shea. A 26-year-old man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Authorities say a 36-year-old man was hospitalized in serious condition and a 28-year-old woman was hospitalized in stable condition.
O´Shea said it wasn´t immediately known if anyone in the group returned fire. The shooters fled the scene in the vehicles they arrived in.
“We don´t expect this type of activity in this neighborhood,” O´Shea said. “This area is well policed, and this is something that was specifically targeted for these individuals.”
Oak Street is known for its clothing boutiques and other high-end retail, including several jewelry stores.
