Restaurant employee shot and killed while working service window

An employee working the service window at the Original Maxwell Street in Lawndale was shot and killed early this morning.

CHICAGO - An employee working the service window at a local restaurant was shot and killed early this morning by an unknown person, authorities said.

The incident happened around 3:10 a.m. this morning on the 3800 block of W. Harrison at the Original Maxwell Street in the Lawndale neighborhood on the city's west side.

The victim has yet to be identified but Police said an employee of the restaurant was working the overnight service window when he was shot in the face by an unknown person. The victim was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital where he was originally reported in critical condition. He died from his injuries a short time later.

Due to the nature of his wounds, the victim was unable to provide Police with additional details and there is no one in custody. Area Four detectives are investigating.

This Original Maxwell Street location is the same location where, back in March of this year, two Chicago police officers were shot and wounded while waiting in line for their food.[1]
