2 dead, 2 injured after shooting, crash in Lawndale: police

Two people were killed and two more were injured Wednesday after a shooting led to a crash in Lawndale on the West Side.

Just before 8 p.m., people inside a westbound Chevrolet fired shots toward a Kia in the 4300 block of West Roosevelt Road, Chicago police said. The Kia eventually veered off the road and crashed into a fixed object, while the Chevy continued west and crashed into another vehicle in the 5800 block of West Roosevelt Road.

Four people fled from the Chevy and have not been caught, police said.

Two people in the Kia, a 21-year-old woman and 23-year-old man, were killed, police said.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the 21-year-old woman as Kiondria Richards of Dolton, and the man as Nautica Banks of Lawndale.

Autopsy results found they died of multiple injuries from the crash and ruled their deaths homicides, the medical examiner’s office said.

Another woman in the Kia, 23, was shot in the buttocks, police said. She was also hurt in the crash and taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where she was in critical condition. A 25-year-old man in the Kia was in good condition at the same hospital with injuries sustained from the crash.

Area Four detectives are investigating.
