Shooting on popular Chicago trail leaves 1 dead, 2 injured

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police are investigating a shooting on a popular walking and biking trail on the city’s Northwest Side that left one man dead and two other people injured.

Police say the three were walking on the Bloomingdale Trail that’s widely known as the 606 trail at about 12:10 a.m. Tuesday when three males asked about their gang affiliation and opened fire.

Twenty-two-year-old Alejandro Aguado of Portage, Indiana, was shot in the chest and in the back. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office says he was pronounced dead at Norwegian Hospital. A 20-year-old woman is hospitalized in critical condition. The condition of a third victim — a 20-year-old man — was stabilized after he was treated for a gunshot wound to his lower backside.

Police say no arrests have been made.
