Posted Tuesday, June 11th 2013 @ 12pm

A drive by shooting on Monday left four people injured and one dead, 18-year-old April McDaniel.

McDaniel was shot on the scene in the Englewood block of 5700 South Sangamon Avenue. 

According to reports, McDaniel and her friends were gathered on a porch in the neighborhood when an SUV with four men inside approached the home. They asked the group of teens sitting on the porch if any of them sold marijuana. When the group replied, "no," one of the men exited the car and began shooting at the porch.

Grief stricken friends and relatives told reporters that McDaniel was an aspiring singer and dancer. 

McDaniel's four friends who were with her on the porch all sustained gun wounds but will recover.
