A southwest suburban man was shot to death inside a Gage Park neighborhood home Sunday afternoon on the Southwest Side.

Daniel Delgado, 33, was in a hallway of the home in the 5500 block of South Spaulding about 4:30 p.m. when someone walked up and shot him, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Delgado, of the 300 block of Heritage Parkway in Romeoville, was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 4:35 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy found he died of a gunshot wound to the left thigh and his death was ruled a homicide.

Police said witnesses were being uncooperative with the investigation.

Another fatal shooting happened less than 20 minutes earlier in the Gage Park neighborhood.
