Brittany ‘Bonnie’ Leflore found with fatal gunshot wound on sidewalk less than a block away from her home in Roseland

Brittany “Bonnie” Leflore was shot to death late Tuesday less than a block from her home in the Roseland neighborhood on the Far South Side.

Officers responded about 11:35 p.m. to a call of a person shot and found the 22-year-old lying on the sidewalk in the 10700 block of South Indiana, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Leflore had been shot in the abdomen and left ankle, and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where she was pronounced dead at 12:13 a.m. Wednesday, authorities said. The 2013 Corliss High graduate lived less than a block away from the shooting scene.

Family members said she had been dropped off after going out with friends, and they do not believe she was the intended target.

Area South detectives are investigating.
