On Sunday, July 26, 2020 at approximately 3:00 P.M. the Evanston Police Department responded to a 911 call reporting that a person was shot in the 1900 block of Hartrey Ave.
Upon arrival, officers located a 29-year-old male on the sidewalk who sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Officers started first aid on the victim until Evanston Fire Department Paramedics arrived on scene. Paramedics continued to provide life saving measures and the victim was transported to NorthShore University HealthSystem Evanston Hospital.
Subsequently, the victim was pronounced deceased. The incident is being investigated by both Evanston Police Detectives and members of the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force (NORTAF). The victim has since been identified as a 29-year old resident of Evanston. Investigators are looking into the possibility that this incident may have stemmed from a prior shooting on July 25, 2020, police said.
Witnesses observed two male subjects wearing masks exit a vehicle, shoot the victim, and flee the scene. At this time, no suspects are in custody.
