Dispute At CHA Building Ends With Elderly Resident’s Shooting Death

CHICAGO (CBS) — A dispute between two residents in a senior living center ended in gunfire Sunday afternoon, killing an 80-year-old man.
Chicago police say it happened in the lobby of the Vivian Carter Apartments on Chicago’s South Side at about 4:45 p.m. The high-rise is a Chicago Housing Authority building.

A CHA spokesperson said the men apparently knew each other and the suspect was in custody, CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reports.

The shooting victim, Robert Wesley, 80, of 6401 S. Yale Ave., was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 5:19 p.m.

It’s not known what led to the shooting. The CHA has a no-guns policy.

CHA officials and the Chicago Police Department are investigating.

      Well said, Centurion. Just because there’s a NO GUNS policy doesn’t mean there are no guns on the premises. Thinking like that is pretty dumb.
