22-year-old man who authorities erroneously said was 15 years old died after a late-morning shooting at a Far South Side bus stop, and nine others were injured in separate shootings Monday, Chicago police said.
Derrick Hall was waiting at a bus stop in the 9100 block of South Cottage Grove Avenue in the Burnside neighborhood about 11:15 a.m., police said.
The gunman approached and opened fire, striking the man in the neck and twice in the back, said Officer Jessica Rocco, a police spokeswoman.
Hall was rushed to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 11:48 a.m., according to the police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Police correctly identified the man shot to death as being 22 years old. Tuesday morning, the medical examiner’s office erroneously identified him as 15, but after the Tribune checked public records and found him to be 22, an office spokeswoman this afternoon corrected Hall’s age.
Hall was among at least 10 people shot in Chicago between Monday morning and early Tuesday, according to police.
