Sixteen-year-old Demonis Johnson was killed in the same shooting that left Bruce Crosby dead last week in the Lawndale neighborhood on the Southwest Side, but police belive the teen was not an intended target of the shooter.
The 20-year-old Crosby, known to friends as “Koboy Savage,” was sitting in a vehicle with a 17-year-old girl about 2:20 p.m. June 12 in the 1500 block of South Kildare, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
A dark-colored SUV pulled up and someone inside fired shots toward the vehicle, police said.
Crosby, who lived about a block away, suffered a gunshot wound to the head, and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 3:21 p.m., police and the medical examiner’s office said.
Johnson, who lived about a block away, who was standing on the sidewalk nearby when the shooting occurred, police said.
The boy also suffered a gunshot wound to the head, and was taken to Mount Sinai. He was pronounced dead there at 11:57 a.m. June 13. He lived about a block away from the shooting.
The girl was shot in the abdomen, and was taken to Mount Sinai in serious condition.
A police source said investigators do not believe Johnson was an intended target of the shooting.
