CHICAGO, IL – In a shocking incident that unfolded in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood, a 30-year-old man lost his life after being shot and subsequently crashing his vehicle into a T-Mobile store. The victim, identified as Christian Ruiz, was at a red light when he was ambushed by three unidentified individuals in a dark-colored vehicle.
