According to police, Sylvester was shot at least 64 times outside the Cook County Jail in Chicago, the Chicago Tribune reported.

He posted $5,000 bail Friday, the newspaper said.

Despite the number of shots fired, Sylvester was the only fatality in the apparent ambush, though the 60-year-old and another woman were injured.

The second woman is an activist who assists people newly released from prison, and the 60-year-old posted Sylvester’s bail, CWB Chicago reported.
