Home intruder guns down Wisconsin man in Rogers Park home

A Wisconsin man was fatally shot by a home intruder Tuesday morning inside a residence in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side.

Quentin Pruett, 45, of Madison, Wisconsin, was inside a home around 3:33 a.m. in the 7600 block of North Sheridan Road when someone began knocking on the back door and pushed it open, police said.

The home intruder got inside and started shooting where Pruett was standing in the living room, police said.

The gunman ran away northbound in the alley and a witness in the apartment called 911, according to police.


Pruett suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one is in custody as Area Three detectives investigate.
