Police say the three were walking on the Bloomingdale Trail that’s widely known as the 606 trail at about 12:10 a.m. Tuesday when three males asked about their gang affiliation and opened fire.

Alejandro Aguado, 22, of Portage, Indiana, was shot in the chest and in the back. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office says he was pronounced dead at Norwegian Hospital. A 20-year-old woman is hospitalized in critical condition. The condition of a third victim — a 20-year-old man — was stabilized after he was treated for a gunshot wound to his lower backside.

Police say no arrests have been made.
