Michael A. Johnson, 43, was found with a gunshot wound to the head about 10:45 p.m. sitting in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle in the 700 block of West 59th Street, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Johnson, of the 2900 block of West 79th Street, was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead 11:22 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said.
About an hour earlier, a 14-year-old boy was shot to death in the Gage Park neighborhood on the South Side, police said.
J-Quantae Riles, 14, was walking home from the store with a group of friends in the 2200 block of West 59th Street about 9:30 p.m. when shots rang out, according to Chicago Police and anti-violence activist Andrew Holmes, who spoke with the boy’s mother Sunday.
The teen was found dead on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the back, authorities said. Holmes said it’s unclear if the shooting was a drive-by. The teen’s friends ran off when they heard the shots.
J-Quantae’s mother had recently moved the teen and his seven-year-old sister back to Chicago from Virginia, Holmes said. She is six months pregnant with twins.
“She thinks it’s her fault because he got shot, but I explained to her it’s not her fault,” Holmes said. “She’s totally upset. She’s totally traumatized.”

McGhee, who lived on the same block, was shot in the abdomen and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he later died, authorities said.
