Police investigate shooting death on Brown


Evanston police are investigating a shooting in the 1800 block of Brown Avenue that occurred about 6:15 this evening and left a 19-year-old victim dead.

Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott says officers responded to several calls about shots fired and discovered the victim lying on the parkway. Fire paramedics transported him to Evanston Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The medical examiner's office identified the victim as Justin Murray, who lived on the block where he was shot. Police say Murray had attended Evanston Township High School, but they weren't sure whether he had graduated.

Parrott says no suspects are in custody and anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the police department at 847-866-5000.
