Torrance D. Bell was fatally shot near a Humboldt Park library Monday afternoon.

Bell, 23, just exited a parked vehicle in the 700 block of North Kedzie Avenue when three people approached and two of them opened fire about 2:40 p.m., authorities said.

Bell, of the 600 block of North Ridegway Avenue, was shot multiple times and died at Mount Sinai Hospital less than an hour later, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Another person who exited the vehicle with Bell was not injured, police said.

The gunman ran away after the shooting, which happened near the Richard M. Daley-West Humboldt Chicago Public Library branch at 733 N. Kedzie Ave., and nobody has been charged for the murder.

Area North detectives are investigating.
