Mensa Kifle was killed and another man was seriously wounded in a Monday morning shooting in the Edgewater neighborhood that prompted nearby Loyola University to issue a campus alert.
Kifle was shot about 10:35 a.m. in the 1100 block of West Glenlake Avenue, authorities said.
Kifle, of the 6000 block of North Albany Avenue, was shot in the shoulder and right hip and pronounced dead at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston at 11:27 a.m., authorities said.
A 24-year-old man was also wounded and taken in serious condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center after being shot in both legs, police said.

Nothing worse than waking up choking on tears & realizing it wasn't just a bad dream. RIP Mensa
