CHICAGO (CBS) — A Chicago man was shot to death late Thursday during a fight in north suburban Evanston, police said.

Officers responded at 11:38 p.m. to a call of shots fired in the 1800 block of Hovland Court and found 20-year-old Yakez Samark suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.

That’s according to Evanston police.

He had been involved in a fight with another male, who shot him and ran off.

Semark was taken to Evanston Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office has not confirmed the death.
