She looked out her window just before 3 a.m. Sunday after hearing what sounded like a crash. She saw that a car had crashed into two parked cars and into a tree, knocking down two street signs. The passenger in the vehicle could be heard saying he was shot, she said.
"The driver was a little out of the window," she said. "He moved one time and that's it."
Where the car crashed, in the 2200 block of West Jackson Boulevard, a medical worker could be seen inside an emergency van pumping the chest of a person inside.
A 19-year-old man, who had not yet been identified, was shot multiple times in the back and pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital, Chicago police said. A 40-year-old man was shot in the shoulder, and he was in fair condition at Stroger Hospital.
The men were in a car in the 2100 block of West Jackson Boulevard when an unknown person walked up and began shooting at them, police said. The men then drove away and crashed nearby.
The 19-year-old man was one of eight people who were killed in separate shootings from midday Saturday to Sunday morning. Of those homicides, five people were killed within a three-hour period.
