Man killed in early morning shooting

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.
