Emmett Marsh, 35, was sitting in a parked vehicle on the 1100 block of South Richmond at 8:20 p.m. when someone walked up to the car and shot him in the torso, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A friend drove Marsh to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:35 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office. He lived in the 1600 block of South Stanley Street in Peoria.

Marsh was the first homicide of the Labor Day weekend, during which at least seven other people were killed.
