Police: Man killed, 2 others wounded in shooting at N. Side Starbucks

A drug deal gone wrong is being blamed for the shooting, which left one person dead and two more, including a 12-year-old boy, injured.

The 12-year-old boy and a 24-year-old man were waiting for the 28-year-old inside the Starbucks when the shooting began, Buslik said. Police said the man who had been involved in the possible drug deal died at the scene.

The 12-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the groin and was being treated at Lurie Children's Hospital, where he was in good condition, police said. His condition is unknown at this time. The Cook County medical examiner's office has not confirmed the man's death. The shooter and the slain man were apparently involved in a transaction at Wilson Avenue and Broadway, after which the victim ran into a Starbucks.

The second man and the boy were also shot while the attacker was aiming at him, according to Buslik. The two others who were wounded were standing near the man who was killed, police said.

Police said the shooting "stemmed from a possible drug transition" and is not believed to be random. "I grabbed my wife and kind of pushed her down and said, 'Shots!' Then there were three more, nearly within a few seconds", said Mike Swaiko, a witness.

Loomer has threatened to take legal action against Uber and accused it and Lyft of hiring "terrorists" and "rapists". Loomer also retweeted an individual who claimed that they were kicked out of an Uber in September for being Jewish.

The suspect is still at large, he said.

A statement on the company's website Thursday said the store would be closed Friday morning "as we focus on our local store partners, ensuring they have the support they need".

Kendra Nance, 26, who lives in the neighborhood, was walking at Broadway and Lawrence when she heard four shots.

No one has been taken into custody yet.
