Kirklinn Fowlkes, 19

On July 23rd, Kirklinn Fowlkes and two others were sitting on a porch at 2939 West 81st Street in the Southwest Side's Wrightwood neighborhood. They got into an argument with another group of people. Kirklinn was shot in the back, another person suffered a graze wound, and the third broke their wrist jumping from the porch to escape the melee. The shooting happened about 11:30 a.m. Kirklinn was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 12:19 p.m. Cook County court records show he was charged in June with felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, a case that was still pending in court when he died.
