A 40-year-old man was fatally shot early Wednesday on the Near West Side.

At 12:03 a.m., Jawon Jermaine Garrett was with a group of males in the 2300 block of West Madison when two more males walked up and fired shots, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Garrett suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body, and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:41 a.m., authorities said. He lived in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.

No one was in custody early Wednesday as Area Central detectives conduct a homicide investigation.
