CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago police say they have no suspects in custody in the fatal shooting of a father of three as he sat at his kitchen table paying bills.

Authorities say a bullet fired during a fight on the street struck 32-year-old Demarco Kennedy in the neck late Tuesday. He died at a nearby hospital hours later.

Kennedy’s wife, Nicole, and children where in another room at the time of the shooting and weren’t injured.

Authorities say the shot came from the parking lot of a nearby fast-food restaurant. It traveled along a gangway and to a second-floor apartment, ricocheting off a window handle and striking Kennedy.

Kennedy’s cousin, Beverly Smith, on Wednesday described him as a “great dad” who loved his wife and children.
