Authorities have identified the 31-year-old man shot to death early Tuesday in Old Irving Park as a Northwest Side man.

Rocky Weekes got into a fight about 3:05 a.m. in the 3300 block of North Keeler with someone who then pulled out a gun and shot him in the chest, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Weekes, of the 3400 block of North Kenton, was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 5:10 a.m., authorities said.

Police said the shooting was gang-related.

Weekes was among eight people killed and 46 wounded in gunfire across Chicago over Labor Day weekend.
