Off-duty Chicago firefighter injured in shooting 9-11-21

Excerpts from

Six people were shot, one fatally, in a shooting in Chicago’s West Pullman neighborhood Saturday night that occurred in the 300 block of East Kensington.

At about 9:39 p.m., a group of people were outside and heading to their vehicles when someone inside a vehicle fired multiple shots, striking six people.

A 32-year-old man was shot in the face, was transported to U of C and is listed in critical condition. A 38-year-old man was shot in the stomach and was listed in fair condition.  A 15-year-old girl was shot in the arm and is listed in fair condition. A 42-year-old woman, identified as Schenia Smith, was shot in the arm and armpit and died from her injuries. A 22-year-old man was shot in the leg and arm and is listed in fair condition. A 31-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the head and self-transported to the hospital, where he is listed in fair condition.

One of the people wounded is a Chicago firefighter who was off-duty at the time of the shooting, CFD confirmed.  The firefighter is assigned to a South Side firehouse.

There is no one in custody and Area Two detectives continue to investigate.
