CHICAGO (STMW) – A man was killed in an apparent gang-related shooting Friday night on the Southwest Side.
The man — identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office as 19-year-old Luis Cordova — was shot in the head and shoulder about 10:05 p.m. Friday in the 2600 block of West 47th Street, police said.
Prior to the shooting, a man exited a dark sport-utility vehicle, approached the deceased’s vehicle in the alley and an argument ensued, police said. The man from the SUV then pulled a handgun and shot the man.

The gunman fled after the shooting and is not in custody early Saturday.
An autopsy is scheduled for later Saturday.
