2 shot outside Pilsen carry-out: ‘Time to get bulletproof glass’
The man and his son stood outside Express Grill early Wednesday, hunting for bullet holes in the white cinder block facade of their Pilsen carry-out restaurant.
“Time to get bulletproof glass,” Alex Lazarevski, 54, told his son Tomislav.
Someone in a silver SUV had fired at a group of people at 18th and Halsted streets late Tuesday, right outside the grill. A 43-year-old man was shot in the chest and died on the scene. Another man was shot in the knee and taken to Stroger Hospital.
Lazarevski also owns an Express Grill in University Village. A 31-year-old man was shot and seriously wounded there in the early hours of March 27. Dozens of people stood outside in line for food as police investigated.
