A third man was shot in the chest and and taken to Christ Medical Center in critical condition, police said.

As word of Salter’s death spread, friends and family expressed their condolence online:


Salter’s mother, Stephanie Franklin, told the Chicago Tribune that another son, Schaquille Salter, was killed about two miles away last Independence Day weekend.

Schiquille Salter, 23, was shot several times in the chest while standing on a corner in the 300 block of West 116th Street just after 9 p.m. Sunday, authorities said.

Just before the shooting, Schiquille Salter had helped his grandmother get bags out of her car and made a pizza to share with friends, said his aunt, Rev. Franshonn Salter. About 10 minutes later, gunfire erupted and Schiquille Salter was struck.

Nobody was ever charged in Schiquille Salter’s murder.

Area South detectives are investigating all the killings.
