A 54-year-old man died after being struck by a stray bullet while riding his bicycle in Rogers Park June 6, police said.
About two miles away from Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus, a 27-year-old man was driving near the 7600 block of N. Marshfield Ave. around 2:57 a.m. when he got into an argument with a group of men on the street. One of the men started shooting at the vehicle and wounded the 27-year-old’s right thigh, according to Kelly Bartoli, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Police Department.
The 54-year-old man on his bike was struck in the head with a stray bullet during the altercation and transported to Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston where he was later pronounced dead, according to police.
