A 34-year-old southwest suburban man who was in the city to celebrate his brother's birthday Friday was shot to death about 11:30 p.m. Friday on an Englewood street.
A dark SUV heading east on
71st Street pulled up on the 7100 block of Eggleston Avenue and
someone inside opened fire south on 71st, hitting Lafayette Johnson as he stood
between a Ford Taurus and an SUV. He lived in the 2600 block of West
89th Street in Evergreen Park and died where he fell.
