Andre Chatman, Carey Hollis killed in Austin shooting

Two men were killed in a drive-by shooting in the Austin neighborhood Sunday afternoon.

Andre Chatman, 23, and Carey Hollis, 28, were in a car traveling east in the 5800 block of West North Avenue when another vehicle pulled alongside and a gunman opened fire about 3:45 p.m. Sunday, authorities said.

Both men were struck by the gunfire, but the car was able to continue eastbound another block before crashing into a pole, police said.

Chatman and Hollis, who both lived in the 1000 block of North Mayfield Avenue, both died at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Autopsies determined that Chatman died of multiple gunshot wounds and Hollis died of a gunshot wound to the back, according to the medical examiner’s office, which ruled both deaths homicides.

Nobody has been charged for the killings.

Area North detectives are investigating.
