CHICAGO — Police are investigating the fatal mid-day shooting of a man in Washington Park.

A 20-year-old man was shot in his head at 1:27 p.m. in the 300 block of East 51st Street, said Officer Ana Pacheco, a police spokeswoman. Family members identified him as Marc Campbell, a local rapper who performed as Lil Marc.

At the scene of the shooting, a body lay covered in front of a bus shelter that had been shot out. The area was taped off as police investigated.

He was pronounced dead on the scene, she said.

Area Central detectives are investigating, and no one is in custody, she said.

Pacheco said it's unclear if the shooting was related to another incident about an hour earlier in 5100 block of South Emerald Avenue, in which a 25-year-old man was shot in the thigh.

He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was unknown she said.
