A 28-year-old man was shot to death Sunday afternoon in the Hermosa neighborhood on the West Side.

At 3:08 p.m., Sergio Zaragoza got into an argument with a female in the 1600 block of North Karlov when the argument turned physical, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

During the fight, a male walked up, pulled out a gun and shot Zaragoza in the chest, authorities said.

Zaragoza, who lived a block north of the shooting, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 3:47 p.m., authorities said. The female was not taken to the hospital.

Police said the incident may have been domestic-related.
