A 23-year-old Loyola University student was shot and killed during an attempted robbery just blocks from the school's lake shore campus.
It happened just before 8 p.m. last night in the 1300 block of West Albion in the Rogers Park neighborhood.
The student identified as Mutahir Rauf, from Pakistan, was walking with his brother when two men tried to hold them up.
Rauf thought the gun was a toy and reached for it.
That's when he was shot in the chest and head.
Authorities say Rauf died at the scene.
His brother was not injured.
No one is in custody for the shooting.
