The coroner has identified a 42-year-old man who died in a shooting that also left a teenager wounded outside of an apartment building in North Chicago Saturday evening.
An autopsy performed Monday on Thomas Binford, 42, of North Chicago, showed he died from a gunshot wound, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek.
The North Chicago Police Department and North Chicago Fire Department responded around 7:35 p.m. Saturday to the 1400 block of Cypress Avenue for a report of a shooting.
Officers arrived and located two men with gunshot wounds, according to Lake County Major Crime Task Force Spokesman Christopher Covelli.
One victim, later identified as Binford, was unconscious and not breathing.
Binford was rushed to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan where he was pronounced dead, Covelli said.
The second victim, an 18-year-old North Chicago man, was transported to an area hospital where he remains. His condition has been stabilized.
A preliminary investigation shows the men were outside of a home when they were shot, Covelli said.
The investigation shows the shooting appears to be targeted and not random.
The shooters fled from the scene immediately following the shooting, Covelli said.
Over 20 shots appeared to have been fired based on the number of shell casings seen on the ground at the scene.
A sedan surrounded by crime scene tape had its windows shot out and bullet holes on the outside of the car.
The North Chicago Police Department requested the assistance of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force to assist in the investigation.
Covelli said the investigation remains ongoing at this time.
