CHICAGO - A 20-year-old man from the West Pullman neighborhood has been charged in a shooting over the weekend that left 2 people dead, another man in critical condition, and a fourth wounded, authorities said.
Police announced charges Wednesday against Khalil Gilmore, 20, of the first block of E. Brayton in the West Pullman neighbhorhood on the city's far south side, accusing him of being the shooter in an incident Sunday afternoon that left 2 men dead, another man in critical condition, and a fourth wounded.
As we originally reported, around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, shots rang out on the 6100 block of S. Evans in the Woodlawn neighborhood about a block south of Washington Park.
Police reported a group was hanging out on a front porch on the above block when a dark blue Chevy Impala pulled up and a person got out and sprayed the porch with gunfire. Police now say that man was Khalil Gilmore.
Though we didn't know it at the time, Gilmore was reportedly arrested moments after the shooting on the same block the shooting took place.
The victims in the shooting who died were later identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as 31-year-old Randy Pouncy and 19-year-old Sean Douglas.
A 35-year-old male was also struck multiple times to the body and he was initially listed in critical condition. Police later updated the media to say that there was an additional victim of unknown age who self-transported to a local hospital with a gunshot wound, believed to be in good condition.
Gilmore's official charges are as follows:
- Two (2) felony counts - Murder in the First Degree
- One (1) felony count - Aggravated Battery/Discharge Firearm
- One (1) felony count - Attempted Murder in the First Degree
- One (1) felony count - Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon by a person with no FOID
Gilmore is due in court today.
