ENGLEWOOD — Hours after a man was shot and killed in his SUV Sunday afternoon, his relatives stood vigil at the scene of his death.
Ronald Baskin, 21, of the 1600 block of Aberdeen Street in Chicago Heights, was pronounced dead on the scene at 7:26 p.m., the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said.
Baskin was sitting in his vehicle about 3:55 p.m. in the 6500 block of South Green Street when another man walked up and fired multiple shots, police said.
Police said the shooter came from another dark-colored SUV, which took off after the shooting. No one was in custody Monday.
Several members of Baskin's family, including his grandmother, could be seen mourning his death on Mother's Day. Residents say a woman, who was led from the scene screaming, was in the car with Baskin when he was shot.
"On Mother's Day of all things," a cousin said.
The Tribune reported Baskin is the great-grandson of community activist Hal Baskin.
Ronald Baskin's family and friends received another scare hours after police arrived when several teens abruptly ran by the crime scene. Several of those gathered near the intersection ducked for cover as they passed, some shouting that the young men had a gun.
Though the four teens were quickly chased, handcuffed and detained, no one was in custody regarding the shooting, police said.
