Mahdi Herring killed, two people wounded during argument in Park Manor

Mahdi Herring was killed and two other people were wounded in a shooting Saturday afternoon just blocks from his home in the Park Manor neighborhood.

The three were arguing with a group of people about 12:15 p.m. in the 7100 block of South Rhodes when someone in the other group pulled out a gun and fired at them before running away, according to Chicago Police.

Herring, 19, was shot in the head, and was driven by friends to Jackson Park Hospital. He was later transferred to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:36 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office and police.

He lived about three blocks away in the 7200 block of South Evans.

A 17-year-old boy was shot in the thigh, and was taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition, police said. The third victim, a 35-year-old man, was shot in the neck, and took himself to Provident Hospital, where he was listed in good condition.
