Chicago Police have released a surveillance photo of a man suspected of a shooting that left Marquese Fleming dead and another man wounded nine days ago in the Old Town neighborhood.
About 4 a.m. Sept. 18, the men, the 20year-old Fleming and a 30-year-old man were walking out of a fast food restaurant when someone opened fire in the 100 block of West Division, according to Chicago Police. The shooter then got into a Chevrolet Tahoe and drove away south on Clark Street.
Both men were shot in the back and were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said.
Fleming was pronounced dead at the hospital at 4:55 a.m. that day, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the 100 block of North Larrabee. The 30-year-old man was initially listed in serious condition.
The block where the shooting occurred was the target of a recent undercover drug investigation, according to Ald. Brian Hopkins (2nd). The undercover operation resulted in 16 arrests for drug and robbery offenses.
Anyone with information about the shooting should call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
