A man was found fatally shot multiple times on Labor Day, steps away from an Englewood school, police said.
Police said a 27-year-old man was found around 8 p.m. Monday with multiple gun shot wounds in the ally next to Jesse Sherwood Elementary School at 57th and Princeton.
He was one of at least seven killed over the holiday weekend and more than a dozen injured in Chicago shootings.
Shell casings were seen scattered nearby the Monday night shooting and a car's windows were blown out. Police said the man was unresponsive when officers arrived.
Though the incident didn't happen during school hours or on a school day, some say it sheds light onto the types of areas kids are walking through.
According to a recent Chicago Sun-Times analysis, during the last school year there were 49 people murdered within a block of this year's new Safe Passage routes. About 12 percent, or six of the 49 murders, took place during the school day.
Police said no one was in custody in connection with Monday night's shooting.
