Ramon Flores was shot to death early Monday while hanging out on his front porch in the Belmont Central neighborhood on the Northwest Side.
About 12:20 a.m., the 21-year-old Flores was standing on a porch with a friend in the 2400 block of North Meade, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
A male suspect fired at least 5 shots shots from across the street and Flores was hit as he and his friend tried to run, authorities said.
Flores, who lived on the same block, suffered a gunshot wound to the right arm, which penetrated his chest, authorities said.
He was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was pronounced at 12:57 a.m.
Funeral services for Flores will be conducted at 5 p.m. Friday at the Alvarez Funeral Home at 2500 N. Cicero Ave.
