Teen killed in Albany Park shooting

CHICAGO — A 19-year-old man died after he was shot in his head in Albany Park late Thursday.

The teen was walking in the 5000 block of North Albany Avenue about 11:15 p.m. Thursday when someone got out of a dark-colored SUV and fired several shots, according to the Chicago Police Department.

The victim was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

According to police, he was not a gang member and had no criminal history.

"It's real shocking to hear that happening right here in front of the houses on such a nice residential strip ... right in front of a soccer field that’s in constant use," neighbor Brian Rover said.

No one was in custody.

Detectives are investigating.
