Police Search For Suspect In Fatal Lawndale Shooting

CHICAGO (WBBM) – Police in the west side Lawndale neighborhood say they know who they are seeking in connection with an early-morning shooting Saturday that left one man dead and a second seriously wounded.

Police said this began as quarrel between two brothers shortly before daybreak in their home on the 1500 block of South Harding Avenue. The quarrel spilled outside, and one of the men pulled a gun. Police said the man shot his brother in the legs, but a stray bullet hit a 74-year-old Maywood man in the face.
