Chicago school employee fatally shot in front of school

Abandoned home in Austin
Wow...right around lunchtime too.

From ABC Chicago:
A CPS employee was fatally shot outside Ronald McNair Elementary School, prompting a lockdown Thursday afternoon.

Police said the man was shot in the head by someone on foot around 12:30 p.m. in the 4800-block of W. Walton in the Austin neighborhood.

The Cook County medical examiner's office identified the victim as Denzel Thornton, 25.

Sources told ABC7 the man was a nutrition support compliance officer who worked at McNair, among other schools.
Even in Chiraq it's unusual for people who aren't mixed up bad things to get shot in the head, presumably at close range, by a gunman on foot.
