CHICAGO (STMW) – A man died after being shot in a drive-by the Southwest Side Lawndale neighborhood early Saturday.

The man, identified as Emandrell Crum, 22, of an unknown address, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office, was shot in his side the 1300 block of South Troy Street about 2:14 a.m., police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.
