DAILYKENN.com -- A 20-year-old student was fatally shot while walking in Chicago.
Reports suggest that DePaul University student Gary Tinder was shot without provocation.
It appears the victim may have been killed for sport and that the shooter may have been showing off in front of his companions.
The shooting occurred June 20, 2020. 21-year-old Jahrod Jean was arrested about a month later and charged with one count of first-degree murder.

Jean was with two other people in silver Ford Explorer when they first drove to the area about 7:00 p.m. to talk to someone about selling an iPhone, prosecutors said. Half an hour later, he allegedly came back for an unknown reason and saw Tinder walking north on Troy Street.
Jean allegedly got out of the Ford, followed Tinder and fired two shots as he approached, prosecutors said. Tinder was struck in the abdomen and taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he died.
