Demarco Kennedy fatally shot while eating dinner when bullets fly through window of Roseland apartment

While he was sitting at a table in his second-floor apartment in Roseland on Tuesday night, Demarco V. Kennedy was struck by a bullet fired from outside.

It was about 8:10 p.m. and the 32-year-old Kennedy was home in the 600 block of East 102nd Place. He was eating dinner before heading to work when he was shot in the neck, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Kennedy was taken to Trinity Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:14 p.m., authorities said.

Kennedy is the father of three, but while his wife and kids were home at the time, they were in another room and were not injured, a police source said.

Police believe the shots may have fired from the parking lot of a Popeye’s restaurant down the block, but no one was in custody as of Wednesday afternoon.
