CHICAGO — A drive-by shooting in South Chicago claimed the life of a 20-year-old male and left three others hospitalized, Chicago police said Monday.
According to police, at around 2:35 p.m., in the 3200 block of W. 79th Street, the four males were traveling inside a vehicle when occupants of a car driving in the opposite direction opened fire.
The victim’s vehicle struck a semi-truck at the intersection of W. 79th Street and Columbus.

The 20-year-old male suffered a headshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene. The three remaining victims — ages 21, 19 and 16 — were struck in various limbs and taken to separate hospitals.
Four weapons were also recovered from the scene, police said.
