A 25-year-old man died Saturday afternoon, days after being wounded in a shooting in the Southwest Side Gage Park neighborhood.

Oscar Bravo was standing on the sidewalk in the 2600 block of West 54th Street at 12:52 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, when the driver of a red minivan got out of his vehicle and fired three shots, striking him in the upper right back and left hip, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Bravo was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:23 p.m. Saturday, police and the medical examiner’s office said. Bravo lived only blocks away from where he was shot and killed.
