CHICAGO (CBS) – Gunfire has claimed the life of a teenager in the South Side’s Chatham neighborhood.

Someone shot the 18-year-old male victim around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 800 block of East 82nd Street, according to police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer. He was discovered unresponsive near an alley, police said.

The man was shot multiple times and was taken to Jackson Park Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 10:30 p.m., according to a spokesman for the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
