Sun City man killed, caught between gunfire in Chicago

CHICAGO - An Arizona man preparing to pursue a doctorate degree at Northwestern University has been killed while caught in gunfire between two men in Chicago.

Officials say 25-year-old Shane Colombo was shot Sunday night near a bus stop in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood. The Sun City, Arizona, man was scheduled to join Northwestern's psychology program in fall.

Northwestern President Morton Schapiro calls it a "terrible loss for our community."

Students and staff were told that Colombo received a bachelor's degree from San Francisco State University and was moving to Chicago from New York City. He had been performing research in the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab at Columbia University.
