Courtney Lewis killed, second man wounded when shots are fired into their vehicle in Auburn Gresham

Courtney Lewis was killed and another man critically wounded in a shooting Sunday afternoon in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood.

The 20-year-old Lewis was with three other people about 12:30 p.m. inside a car in the 8200 block of South Ada when shots rang out and the vehicle sped away from the scene, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Two passengers in the car realized they’d been shot and the driver stopped in the 8400 block of South Aberdeen, police said.

Lewis was shot twice in the back, and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 1:15 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said. He lived in the same neighborhood as the shooting.

A 19-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the back and was also taken to Christ Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.
