The coroner’s office has released the identity of a 24-year-old man who died after being shot multiple times Tuesday evening in Waukegan.
The Waukegan Police Department responded around 8 p.m. Tuesday to the 2100 block of Williamsburg Drive for a report of a shooting.
Officers arrived and found a victim lying in the street with gunshot wounds, according to Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Joe Florip.
The victim was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where he was later pronounced dead.
Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek said an autopsy showed the victim, identified as Marshawn Pettis, died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Pettis was 24 years old and a resident of Waukegan, Banek said.
The motive for the shooting is unknown and the Waukegan Police Department Criminal Investigations Division is following up on “many leads,” Florip said.
A second unrelated shooting occurred a short time later in the 200 block of Julian Street in Waukegan around 9:10 p.m. Tuesday.
Officers located a victim who had been shot in an apartment complex parking lot.
The victim was transported to an area hospital where he remains in stable condition. The victim is a Waukegan man in his 20s, Florip said.
The Waukegan Police Department Criminal Investigations Division is investigating the incident.
The motive for the shooting is unknown but detectives are also following up on “many leads,” Florip said.
Both incidents appear to be unrelated. No one is in custody for either shooting.
Anyone with information on either incident is asked to call the Waukegan Police Department Criminal Investigations Division tip line at 847-360-9001.
