Man killed in Maywood shooting during rush hour


A man was shot to death Tuesday evening in west suburban Maywood.

Kevon L. Sturkey, 24, suffered multiple gunshot wounds about 6:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of South 1st Avenue in Maywood, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Sturkey, who also lived in the west suburb, was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was pronounced dead at 6:56 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Wednesday found he died from his wounds and his death was ruled a homicide.

Maywood police believe a driver may have witnessed the rush hour shooting. They are asking anyone who may have been in the area to contact them if they saw anything.
