Police Fail to Stop Shooting
An alleged gang-member was shot and killed Wednesday night in the Northwest Side’s Logan Square neighborhood.
Miguel Loreto, 17, of the 5900 block of South Kolin Avenue, was shot in the head on the 2900 block of West Palmer Street and was pronounced dead at 10:27 p.m. at Norwegian-American Hospital, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
At 10:08 p.m., Loreto was standing outside with a 17-year-old male companion when the shooter armed with a handgun approached on a bicycle and said, “What’s up bitch?” then opened fire and shot one of the teens in the forehead, according to police. The shooting occurred across the street from a church in an area known as Palmer Square.
