An 18-year-old man died Monday morning after being stabbed and beaten in the Southwest Side's West Lawn neighborhood, authorities said.

About 1:35 a.m. Monday, the man was involved in a "physical altercation" with at least three people in the 6500 block of South Kilpatrick Avenue, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.

One of the others struck him on the head with a blunt object, and a second stabbed him multiple times in his right side, Mirabelli said.

Jesse Gonzalez, of the 6100 block of South Rockwell Street, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. He was pronounced dead at 7:41 a.m. Monday.

No suspects are in custody as Area Central detectives investigate.

An autopsy is scheduled for today.
