Man dead after shooting in Elgin
A 24-year-old man died after a shooting Tuesday morning in Elgin, the town's first homicide this year, authorities said. Police responded at 10:32 a.m. on the 1200 block of Fleetwood Drive and found the man shot outside, spokeswoman Kristie Hilton said. The man was taken to Presence St. Joseph Hospital and pronounced dead there.
Police said later Tuesday the shooting followed an argument and then a fight among several people in a parking lot.
Identification of the man who died will come from the Kane County coroner's office, which said information will be released after an autopsy is done today. Police said they also would provide an update today.
The last homicide in Elgin was the Sept. 9 shooting of Shaprie Smith-Tate, 25, of Chicago, who police said was shot outside a bar by her brother, Shannon Smith, 23, also of Chicago. Smith has an outstanding warrant for his arrest on multiple charges, including first-degree murder.
Detectives from the major and special investigation divisions are investigating Tuesday's shooting.
