A 19-year-old man was fatally shot in the South Side's Lake Meadows neighborhood in one of three shootings Monday night on the South and West Sides, officials said.
Torri Stewart, of the 900 block of East 81st Street, was shot in the head about 8:20 p.m. as he sat in a vehicle in the 3100 block of South Rhodes Avenue, authorities said.
He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:41 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Later, about 9:30 p.m., four teenagers were shot in 5200 block of West Iowa Street, in the West Side's South Austin neighborhood.
The teens had been part of a large group involved in a fight on the street when a light-colored car pulled up and at least one person inside opened fired, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.
