Three people are dead, including a 16-year-old boy, after a group of men opened fire in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood.

It happened around 9 a.m. Wednesday, in the 6700 block of South Chappel Avenue.

“It’s not fair at all,” Lois Pickett told WGN’s Marcella Raymond.  Pickett’s 16-year-old son was one of the victims.

Rasheed Trull was waiting for his girlfriend in the courtyard of her apartment building.  Two men were also there; 23 year old Darius Morris and 27 year old Sylvester Solomon.

A car pulled up, the driver pulled out a gun and started shooting.  Rasheed’s twin brother Raheem was also there but managed to escape the barrage of bullets.  Trull, Morris and Solomon were killed.

Chicago police say Morris was a gang member and may have been the intended target.

No one is in custody as of 5:00 pm, Thursday.
