A 19-year-old man is dead after being stabbed in Rogers Park on Saturday afternoon. The man was mortally wounded less than a block from where a 47-year-old man would be fatally shot less than 12 hours later. Police have not publicly connected the two murders. No one is in custody for either slaying.
A witness flagged down patrol officers on the 1600 block of West Jonquil Terrace at 3:49 p.m. Saturday to report that man had been wounded. Police on the scene found Lance Strickland bleeding outside of a residence and immediately radioed for an ambulance.
An unknown offender stabbed Strickland on the second floor of a residential building after a verbal argument escalated, according to a CPD spokesperson.
According to a CPD statement, a gunman opened fire from a passing SUV, striking the Williams in the chest around 2:10 a.m. Williams made his way to the courtyard of a nearby apartment building where he collapsed. A local resident called for help.
An ambulance crew transported Wiliams to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston where doctors later pronounced him dead.
