Police are investigating whether 2 Rogers Park killings are connected in 2 days



Police investigate two deadly shootings over two days in Rogers Park: An elderly man is killed while walking with his dogs, and a man who was killed by sea is deterred.

"The way these two men (killed) is similar," said Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. "Detectives work aggressively to see if there's anything in common between the shootings."

Eliyahu Moscowitz, 24, was shot dead in the head, near his left ear, found in the 1100 block of West Lunt Avenue south of Loyola Park at 22:20 pm Monday, police said. A witness found him lying lying on the road and called the police.

Investigators had no description of the gunman, but they checked videos from several surveillance cameras in the area, police said.

Rev. John Elleson of Lakewood Chapel said he visited both neighborhoods to help people cope with it. Monday night he prayed near where Moscowicz was found.

"He lies there with the rain coming down and if it were my son or my relative, I would just want someone to be with them at this time, so it's sad," Elleson said. "I only find my heart breaking with the gentleman."

Moscowitz ran a kosher kitchen in a Jewel Osco store. "Our heart goes to the family of Eliyahu Moscowitz", it says in a statement. "He spent more than two years with Jewel-Osco as Mashgiach, providing excellent customer service, and Eliyahu was also very sympathetic and very popular with his peers."
