CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - Four people were wounded — one fatally — in a shooting Thursday on Lake Shore Drive on the North Side near Lincoln Park.

The people in the vehicle drove off and the group in the Honda exited on Belmont, police said. They came to a stop in the 3200 block of North Broadway in Lake View.
Authorities were called to a Walgreens parking lot where they found the car riddled with bullets on the driver’s side.
