Fam­ily and friends of Peter Rim, a subur­ban chef killed on Chicago’s North­west Side last week, are host­ing a pub­lic me­mo­rial for him.

The event is planned for 5 to 9 p.m. Nov. 11 at Lucky Star in Bartlett.

The owner of pop­u­lar north­west subur­ban restau­rants was fa­tally shot Oct. 25 in the 4100 block of West Di­versey Av­enue. Po­lice and wit­nesses said Rim was a pas­sen­ger in a ve­hi­cle when some­one in an SUV pulled up and opened fire. A friend of Rim’s who was at the scene de­scribed the shooter as a man in his mid­dle to late

20s and said there was no provo­ca­tion for the at­tack.

Rel­a­tives said Rim, who was 46 and lived in South Bar­ring­ton, was beloved by cus­tomers at his restau­rants, Bistro Wasabi and El Cochino in Lake in the Hills and Bistro Wasabi in Hoff­man Es­tates. “The out­pour­ing of love and sup­port from so many dif­fer­ent peo­ple, we want to honor that,” said his brother, Steve Rim, 43.

A Chicago Po­lice Depart­ment spokesman said Fri­day the case re­mains an ac­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Po­lice have re­leased pho­tos of a ve­hi­cle be­lieved to have been in­volved in the shoot­ing. The im­ages show a Nis­san Rogue with tinted win­dows and a miss­ing front li­cense plate. Those with in­for­ma­tion can call Area North de­tec­tives at 312-744-8261. Anony­mous tips can be sub­mit­ted to Peter Rim
