A University of Chicago PhD student was shot and killed last night on the 6100 block of S Ellis. Amadou Cisse, 28, was from Senegal and had just defended his dissertation.
So far, police haven't identified a motive, but have corrected initial reports that called the shooting a drive-by; apparently, the shooter approached Cisse on foot. Police are, however, looking for a "dark-colored car" that was seen driving away from the scene.
