16-year-old Christian Bandemer fatally shot just blocks from U.S. Cellular Field in Bridgeport

Sixteen-year-old Christian Bandemer was shot to death Friday morning in the Bridgeport neighborhood on the South Side, just a couple of blocks from U.S. Cellular Field.

The teen was shot in the chest about 11:35 a.m. in the 3500 block of South Parnell, Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Bandemer, who lived in the 900 block of West 36th Street, just a few blocks from where he was was shot, was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:59 a.m., authorities said.

An autopsy Saturday found that he died from a shotgun wound to the chest, and his dead was ruled a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.
