Also on Saturday, around 2:00 AM, William Hair, 34, was discovered laying on a sidewalk in the Lakeview district after being shot in the chest, police said.
The individual was rushed to the hospital, but he was pronounced dead upon arrival. “Three blocks from his house, a car pulled up. Two people came out. There were two gunshots, one from each person,” his brother, Matthew Hair, said. “They did not ask for money. They did not ask for anything. They shot at him for no reason.”
The police have not yet made any arrests, but the investigation is ongoing. Two victims were sh*t around 2:55 a.m. on Saturday in the 2300 block of West 18th Street, right in the middle of downtown Chicago.
