A 37-year-old man was shot to death Sunday night in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

About 8:20 p.m., Phillip Floro was walking with a friend in the 1600 block of North Central when he heard a shot and realized he’d been struck in the abdomen, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Floro, of the 3000 block of West Franklin, was taken to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park, where he died at 9:16 p.m., authorities said.

Investigators think the shooting was gang-related.
