Authorities reported that shooting at one of Chicago’s most elegant streets resulted in the death of one person and the injury of two others.
The vice-president of Daniel O’Shea said that two of the archers jumped from two separate vehicles and opened fire on a group of people standing outside the shops on Oak Street. 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 critical condition and that a 28-year-old woman was hospitalized in stable condition.
O’Shea said he did not immediately know if anyone in the group had fired back. Archers fled the scene in the vehicles they got.
“We do not expect this kind of activity in this neighborhood,” said O’Shea. “This area is well controlled, and this is something that has been specifically targeted at these individuals.”
Oak Street is famous for its clothing stores and other high-end retail stores, including many jewelry stores.
