The death of 45-year-old Kristopher Weiss in the Bridgeport neighborhood last month has been ruled a homicide.
Emergency crews responded to a person down in the 3000 block of South Normal at 11:46 p.m. July 22 and found Weiss, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
He had been involved in an altercation with two other men, authorities said. One of the men punched him in the face, causing him to fall backward and strike his head.
The two men then took off in a black pickup, police said.
Weiss, who lived about a block away in the 2900 block of South Normal, was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3:38 p.m. July 24, according to the medical examiner’s office.
