A 32-year-old man was shot dead in an alley in the Edgewater Beach neighborhood on the city's North Side.
Killed was Aaron Price, of the 5500 block of North Winthrop Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
An autopsy is scheduled for later today.
Authorities discovered Price lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest in the 5800 block of North Kenmore Avenue -- mere blocks from his home -- just before 11:45 p.m. Monday, Chicago police said, citing early reports.
While police hadn't located any eyewitnesses to the shooting, they did find someone who saw Price quarreling with another person just before the shooting.
Price was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 12:30 a.m. today, police said.
Authorities didn't have a description of the gunman, or know what the argument was about. Police did recover several bullet casings from a small-caliber handgun at the scene, authorities said.
Police were also unsure of the motive for the slaying, but court records show that Price had dozens of arrests and five felony drug convictions dating back to the late 1990s.
No arrests had been made.
