Man fatally shot, crashes car while driving with 3 young children in Little Village

Three young children were uninjured after gunmen opened fire into their car and killed the driver, causing him to crash into a Little Village cellphone store Wednesday morning.

The 30-year-old was stopped at a red light around 5:36 a.m. with three children in the car in the 2300 block of West Cermak Road when a dark-colored vehicle pulled alongside and someone inside started shooting, police said.

The man was struck in the chest and attempted to flee but crashed his vehicle into a T-Mobile store at 2400 W. Cermak Road, according to officials.


He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The three children in the car—8, 6 and 3—were not injured.

No one is in custody as Area Three detectives investigate.
