A 21-year-old man was gunned down in the Humboldt Park neighborhood Friday evening on the West Side.

Joaquin Gonzalez was shot in the chest about 5:30 p.m. and pronounced dead at the scene in the 2600 block of West Haddon, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Gonzalez lived in the 7700 block of South Peoria. Police have not released the circumstances of the shooting, but an autopsy Saturday ruled his death a homicide.

Another man was shot to death 10 minutes earlier on the South Side.
