A man was fatally shot less than a block from his home in the South Shore neighborhood Tuesday evening.
Anthony J. Nicholas, 38, was standing outside about 6:40 p.m. in the 6700 block of South East End when another male walked up and opened fire, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the same block.
Nicholas was shot in the chest and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:40 p.m., authorities said.
Police said a person of interest has been taken into custody in connection with the homicide. Charges were pending early Wednesday.
