A drive-by shooting that happened in broad daylight Tuesday afternoon in Maywood has left one man dead.
The shooting happened on the 400 block of South 21st Ave. at around 1 p.m., police said. The victim, 23-year-old Ryan Jones, (pictured), was pronounced dead after being rushed to Loyola University Medical Center.
According to Maywood Police Chief Valdimir Talley, this marks the village’s sixth homicide this year. Just last Thursday, a 53-year-old Lyft driver was murdered during a shooting that happened at the corner of Oak Street and 14th Avenue.
So far, there’s been no information made available on any suspect or the make and model of the offending vehicle carrying Jones’ killer.
This case is currently under investigation by Maywood police. More as this story develops. VFP
