A teenage boy was killed and three other teens were wounded when a masked gunman walked up to them in a McDonald's parking lot in Rogers Park, Illinois and opened fire this afternoon, authorities said.
The boy, believed to be 16, was shot in the head and was dead on the scene, authorities said. He had collapsed in a driveway just south of the McDonald's at 6740 N. Clark St., next to a strip mall with a pizza restaurant, a dental office and a dollar store.
The boy's aunt said he was the third of five children and was close with his siblings. He was an aspiring musician who put together demo tapes, she said.
"He mostly just stayed in, rapping and singing," said the boy's aunt.
The boy was shot just after arriving at McDonalds for a bite to eat, she said.
The victims had a verbal fight with several other people outside the McDonald's just before the shooting, police said. The four were in the parking lot of the McDonald's when they were approached around 3:30 p.m. by the masked gunman, O'Brien said. News Affairs did not have a detailed description of the shooter.
A girl about 15 years old was shot several times and an 18-year-old man was shot in the lower back, police said. Both of them were taken to Presence St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in serious condition.
Another 18-year-old man was shot in the arm and was being treated at Weiss Memorial Hospital, according to Police News Affairs Officer Daniel O'Brien.
The 18-year-old at Weiss walked into the hospital and said he had been shot at the McDonald's, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said.
The manager of a wine shop across the street said he heard two bursts of gunfire, one apparently inside the restaurant and the second in parking lot.
“That was the last guy that got shot and that was it," he said, asking not to be identified. “I heard the shots, but when I looked everything was all done."
The manager said he called 911 and officers arrived within 3 to 5 minutes.
