Kenmore Shooting Victim’s Identity Released

kenmore2It was a beautiful Monday evening last night on the 5200 block of Kenmore Ave as some neighbor’s gathered with friends on a deck for dinner, some senior citizens gathered in their outdoor courtyard to chat and 20+ children finished a day at Epworth church’s shelter. That all ended around 10p.m. with a very horrific shooting that left one man dead and resident’s frustrated with another victim in an active Edgewater summer of gun violence.

Now the victim’s identity has been released. He is 34-year-old Demond Parnell. He was a Rogers Park resident who lived in the 1600 block of Greenleaf Ave.  There were reports of a large argument before the shooting. Mr. Parnell is believed to be the intended target.

No one is currently in custody for the shooting.
