Man Killed Over Bicycle

Posted on in Criminal Defense

A 22-year-old man had an argument over a bicycle that led to him getting shot and killed. The incident took place in the Jeffery Manor neighborhood, according to authorities. The Chicago Tribune reported a story on the case.

The 22-year-old man was outside, and he was arguing with another man over a bicycle when the shooting happened, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said. According to officials, the victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds in the shooting.

The 22 year old man was identified as Parrish Flournoy by the Cook County medical examiner's office. Flournoy does not live in the area where the shooting took place, and it is unclear why he was in the area.

According to a witness, the two men had been arguing about who owns the bicycle. The second man had taken the bicycle and pedaled away, but Flournoy had started following the man on foot. The two men had continued arguing, and the police believe a third person had opened fire and shot the victim multiple times before fleeing the scene.

Flournoy was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Flournoy was on parole in two felony burglary cases, with sentences amounting to four years in prison.
