CHICAGO (STMW) – A teenager who was on parole was killed in a Morgan Park neighborhood shooting on the Far South Side Sunday night.

Jerome N. Harris, 17, was shot in the neck about 9 p.m. in the 1100 block of West 112th Place, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later, authorities said.

Harris, of the 11000 block of South State Street, was convicted in February of assaulting a police officer, according to court records and the medical examiner’s office.

He was sentenced to three years in prison for the assault and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, but was released on parole in March, records show.
