Alecxis Martinez was shot about 10:40 p.m. after getting into an altercation in front of his home in the 400 block of South 44th Avenue, Northlake police said. He was having a dispute with people in one or more vehicles.

Martinez was pronounced dead at 11:09 p.m. at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide.
