Teenage boy fatally shot in Chicago Lawn

A teenage boy was shot to death in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood Thursday evening on the Southwest Side.

The teen -- identified as 15-year-old Sergio Oliva by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office -- was in the 5900 block of South Richmond Street about 5:40 p.m. when he was shot, said police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro.

A man exited a dark SUV, approached Oliva and shot him, Alfaro said.

Oliva, whose home address is not known to authorities, was found on the street with gunshot wounds to the throat and thigh and pronounced dead on the scene, Alfaro said.

No one was in custody early Friday while Area Central detectives investigated.
