CHICAGO (STMW) – A man was found shot to death in the South Austin neighborhood on the West Side Thursday night.

Officers responding to calls of a person shot in the 0-100 block of South Mason Avenue about 10:40 p.m. found a 23-year-old man unresponsive in a stairwell, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

The man, who lived in the 1500 block of South Harding Avenue, had suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:59 p.m., according to Alfaro and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

His name was withheld early Friday pending notification of family members, a representative for the medical examiner’s office said.

No one in custody as Area North detectives investigate.
