People reports that McCullum was shot and killed on the streets of Chicago. The Cook County Medical Examiner noted multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the head.

Lee was in high school when “Chicagoland” was filmed. Viewers rooted for him as he overcame homelessness and gang life to become a student leader and prom king. He was accepted to Talladega College, but never attended.
