According to the Chicago Tribune around 11:55am the man known to drill music fans and some Chicagoans as T.Roy, real name James Johnson, was fatally shot in the 2000 block of East 71st Street in the South Shore neighbourhood.
He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the chest and later pronounced dead.
He went into a store on 71st street and was followed inside by an unknown person who fired a number of shots at him, according to Officer Thomas Sweeney, a police spokesperson.
The man was identified as James ’T.Roy’ Johnson, 23, of the 6300 block of South Keating Avenue & he was pronounced dead at 12:38 p.m.
His murder was misreported by a number of different media outlets who falsely claimed his shooting was the same incident which was broadcasted on Facebook Live, which showed a triple shooting in which a 25 year-old man and a 2-year-old toddler were killed. T.Roy’s murder happened on the South side, whereas that double murder happened on the West side.
