Police say an Evanston man has died after being shot in the head while standing at the corner of Church Street and Grey Avenue shortly after 1 a.m. today.
Cmdr. Tom Guenther says the victim, Keith Bernard Tucker, 40, was in the company of one or two other individuals when his assailant pulled a gun and shot him.
Gunther says a nearby resident who heard gunshots called police who found Tucker on the ground and called for Fire Department paramedics. The paramedics treated Tucker at the scene and transported him to a local hospital where he died about two-and-a-half hours later.
Evanston police and North Regional Major Crimes Task Force investigators are continuing to process the crime scene and conduct interviews.
