Abdullah Trull, 16-Year-Old Boy, Among 3 Killed In South Shore Shooting In Chicago Overnight

Four people are dead and at least four more were injured in Chicago shootings Wednesday night.

Abdullah Trull, 16, was standing in a courtyard in the 6700 block of South Chappel Avenue with two other men when several gunmen walked up to the trio and opened fire around 8:45 p.m., the Sun-Times reports.

Trull, along with Sylvester Solomon, 27, was struck multiple times, the Tribune reports. Darrius Morris, 23, was hit once in the shoulder. Morris died at the scene, while Trull and Solomon were taken to separate hospitals where they both later died.

In an unrelated shooting just minutes before the South Shore incident, 24-year-old Ashton Pugh was killed in a Washington Heights drive-by shooting. DNAinfo Chicago reports Pugh was standing on a sidewalk in the 8900 block of South May Street when a dark-colored sedan drove by and a gunman fired.

Police believe Pugh's shooting may be gang-related. There were no suspects in custody as of Thursday morning.

At least four others, including a 16-year-old boy in Roseland, were wounded in shootings across the city Wednesday.
