Steven Marshall, DeMarco Powell shot dead in a vehicle in West Englewood


Steven Marshall and DeMarco Powell were shot dead inside a vehicle Wednesday night in a West Englewood shooting that left two others wounded.

The four men were sitting in a vehicle in the 1400 block of West 73rd Place when two gunmen opened fire on them about 6:20 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

Powell, 28, of the 7300 block of South Laflin Street, was dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Marshall, also 28, of the 1400 block of West 74th Street, was shot in the back and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died less than an hour later, authorities said.


Two 27-year-old men in the vehicle were also wounded, police said. One man was shot in the buttocks and the other was shot in the left shoulder. Both were hospitalized in “stable” condition.

A fifth person later told police he was hurt by flying glass from the attack, police said.

The gunmen fled on foot, police said.

Area South detectives are investigating.
