A man wearing a ski mask and dressed in all-black walked into an East Garfield Park neighborhood grocery store this evening and shot two men to death. The two killed were described by police as gang members. Police received a call about shots fired at the M and K Grocery on the 3600 block of West Ohio Street at about 6:28 p.m. Neighbors said the two men who were killed might have been playing pool in the back of the store. According to court records, in May 2000, Evans was sentenced to consecutive prison terms of 3 years for delivery of marijuana and 5 years for delivery of cocaine, and in January 2004 received another 3 years for drug possession. Pinkerton was put on probation for a June 2002 conviction for cocaine delivery and then in December 2004 was found guilty of armed robbery and battery and sentenced to 8 years in prison. He was paroled in March 2008. Police said both were members of the Conservative Vice Lords.
Officers responded to shots fired in the 4600 block of West Belmont Avenue at about 9:25 p.m. in the Cragin neighborhood on Chicago's Northwest Side. Arriving officers found Gutierrez unresponsive and laying on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the head.
