Man visiting from Wisconsin shot and killed in Rogers Park home invasion

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A man visiting from Wisconsin was shot and killed during a home invasion early Tuesday in the Rogers Park neighborhood.

As CBS 2's Andrew Ramos reported, the victim's family said this may have been a case of mistaken identity.

Police said the 45-year-old man was inside a home in the 7600 block of North Sheridan Road, just north of Howard Street, shortly after 3:30 a.m. -- when someone started knocking on the door, pushed the door open, and fired shots into the home while the victim was standing in the living room.

A witness called 911 as the shooter ran into the alley.

The victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds, and was pronounced dead at the scene. His family identified him as Quentin Pruett, of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Quentin Pruett, 45, was shot and killed during a home invasion in Rogers Park on March 21, 2023.

Pruett's cousin said he was just visiting friends and family in Chicago when he was killed.
