A man who was shot to death early Sunday on the Far South Side has been identified as a south suburban man.
Ronnie Finch Jr., 25, was a passenger in the front seat of a parked car with two others in the 12200 block of South Racine when a male suspect walked up and fired shots at 1:55 a.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Finch was shot in the right side of the head, and the driver took him to a Calumet Park police station less than a mile away, police said.
He was then taken to MetroSouth Medical Center in Blue Island, where he was pronounced dead at 2:27 a.m., authorities said. He lived in the 12300 block of South Bishop in Calumet Park.
No one else was injured in the shooting.
