Cicero man fatally shot during robbery in West Englewood

A Cicero man was shot to death Sunday evening during a robbery in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

Miguel Haro, 44, was standing outside with another man in the 7200 block of South Hermitage about 5:40 p.m. when two people walked up and opened fire, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Haro, of the 3200 block of South 54th Avenue in Cicero, was shot in the head and taken to Holy Cross Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 6:19 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The pair were working on rehabbing a vacant home when two robbers walked up and ordered them to kneel, according to a police report. One man complied and the robbers took his money and cellphone before striking him with the gun.

The police report said the 44-year-old was shot in the head when he did not comply with the robber’s demands. The robbers ran away after the shooting.
