Trevon Stiger was killed and another man wounded Monday morning in a shooting along a CPS Safe Passage Route in the West Englewood neighborhood, the first of five fatal shootings in the city Monday.

Stiger, 20; and an 18-year-old man were walking in the 2000 block of West Marquette at 9:18 a.m. when a gunman walked up and fired shots, then ran away, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office and Chicago Police.

Stiger, of the 2100 block of West 68th Place, was shot in the abdomen and pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 2:57 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.

The 18-year-old was shot in the face and was taken in serious condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

The shooting happened along Harper High School’s Safe Passage Route.

Prior to the incident, no one had been shot in Chicago since 12:35 a.m. Sunday. But it was the first of at least 16 shootings Monday, five of which were fatal.
