Just found out about another homicide that missed my radar on Thursday.

Jeremy Baggett
15 years old
Baggett and a friend were on the 4200 block of West Thomas Avenue in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood about 9:30 p.m. when someone across the street began firing at them. Baggett was fatally shot while trying to flee on his bicycle. He was pronounced dead at 12:25 a.m. today. The companion told police that Baggett began riding away on his bike and then collapsed a short distance away. Police officers found Baggett on the sidewalk near Piccolo Middle School with a neck wound. He was a sophomore at Orr Academy High School.

Napoleon Gilmore
23 years old
Gilmore was shot and killed this afternoon in the Near West Side's University Village/Little Italy neighborhood. Chicago police responded to a call of gunfire in the 1300 block of West Washburne Avenue about 2 p.m. and found Napoleon Gilmore shot in the chest. He was pronounced dead at 2:36 p.m. at Stroger Hospital.
