A North Side alderman said he is taking "immediate action" after a drug deal led to the fatal shooting of one man, and the wounding of two people, including a 12-year-old, inside an Uptown Starbucks on Thursday night.

Watkins, who lived in the Avalon Park neighborhood, was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

A 12-year-old boy was taken to hospital with a gunshot wound following a shooting took place at 8.10pm (1.10am GMT) local time. The victim, identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Sauvignon Watkins, of the 1100-block of East 82nd Street, was a father of two.

2 dead, 1 injured in shooting at Thornton Walmart
Customers and employees hid or fled toward the exits after gunshots rang out in Thornton, which is a suburb of Denver. Police have since announced that the situation is no longer an active shooting, but is still an active crime scene.

Chicago police Cmdr. Marc Buslik, of the 19th District, told reporters outside the Starbucks the shooting was possibly preceded by a botched drug deal between the shooter and the man who died in the coffee shop. "We were outside and heard two shots, then a pause, and I grabbed my wife and kind of pushed her down and said 'Shots!' And then there were three more nearly within a few seconds", said Mike Swaiko, who was across the street at the time of the shooting. Fire officials said the boy was in serious-to-critical condition.

Buslik said police believe the wounded boy and man knew the dead man but did not elaborate on their relationship. The attacker - who wore dark clothing and a mask, followed him and opened fire - hitting the man.

Area North detectives are investigating.
