Seventeen-year-old Carlos R. Fitz was killed and a coworker wounded in a Logan Square neighborhood shooting early Friday on the Northwest Side.
About 2:30 a.m., they were driving in the 3700 block of West Fullerton when a black four-door vehicle pulled alongside and someone inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police.
Fitz, the passenger, was shot in the head and neck, and died at the scene, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He lived in the Northwest Side Belmont Cragin neighborhood.
The 20-year-old man driving was treated and released from Norwegian American Hospital with a hand wound, police said. No one was in custody for the attack as of late Friday morning.
It was the first fatal shooting in the city since Tuesday night, a span of nearly 55 hours that marked Chicago’s longest stretch without a gun homicide so far this year.
