Shooting in North Lawndale Neighborhood of Chicago Kills Black Male [Video] [Updated]

Shooting

Photojournalist Untrail D. Boyd heard multiple shots, possibly as many as seven and he followed the sounds of the shooting. At the scene, there was a crowd of people gathered around near the victim at 1531 S. Karlov Ave, Chicago, Ill.

When he arrived on the scene, at 9:15 p.m. CDT, the Chicago police and emergency responders from the fire department were already present. Boyd indicated the victim was male and appeared to be an adult in his 20s. He was supine on the sidewalk and motionless. There were several police officers standing near the victim and a man bending over near his head. It appeared as though they were determining the extent of the wound(s).

Once Boyd was able to ask the officers for information he was told the shooting victim was en route to Mount Sinai Hospital. The fallen male’s mother was taken to the hospital in a police cruiser. One witness stated he believed the man’s name was Stacy, however, the name of the victim remains unconfirmed.

There were many shell casings on the ground at the scene, they could easily be seen by the police markers in the street. When Boyd was taking photos he discovered a bullet hole in a nearby GMC truck.

This is a developing story and Guardian Liberty Voice will provide updates as they become available.

UPDATE: At 1:05 a.m. GLV was notified that the victim succumbed to his wounds and passed away.

UPDATE: “Chicago Sun-Times” reported the victim was 17-year-old Stacey Fluckes. He was unresponsive when the police arrived at the scene. Flukes died as a result of the gunshot to his chest.
