A man who was fatally shot Friday night in the South Side Chatham neighborhood has been identified.

Derrick Swanigan, 34, was shot in the chest by someone he knew during a fight inside a home in the 8000 block of South Evans just after 10 p.m., according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Swanigan, who lived on the same block, was taken to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 10:58 p.m., authorities said.

Area South detectives questioned a person of interest after the shooting, but that person was released without being charged.
