Gunmen open fire at large group in Austin, killing 1 and wounding anotherSun-Times Wireon August 18, 2020 at 9:15 pm

Two 18-year-old men were shot Monday — one fatally — in Austin on the West Side.

They were standing in a large group in the 1700 block of North Luna Avenue when multiple gunmen exited a white sedan and opened fire, Chicago police said.

Trayvon McMorris took off down an alley about 11:45 p.m and was shot in his back, officials said.

Officers were flagged down by bystanders and found him in an alley, police said. He was taken to the Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Autopsy results Tuesday found McMorris died from his gunshot wound and ruled his death a homicide.

Another man brought himself to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park with a gunshot wound to the foot, police said. He was listed in good condition.

No one is in custody as Area Five detectives conduct a homicide investigation.
