The attack occurred at Kedzie and Roosevelt in North Lawndale / Homan Square (the neighborhoods meet at that intersection).
The building in the background is a McDonald’s at 3200 W Roosevelt Road.
Across Kedzie from McDonald’s is Lawndale Terrace Apartments at 3158 W Roosevelt Road, which AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust rehabbed.
