A person suspected of fatally shooting a man early Friday in the Lawndale neighborhood was taken into custody after a standoff with police, according to Chicago Police.

Officers responded at 2:42 a.m. to a call of a person shot and found 34-year-old Gregory Petty unresponsive on the front porch of a home in the 2200 block of South Kildare, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Petty was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died within the hour, authorities said. He lived in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.

A witness told officers that the man was shot during an altercation with another male who barricaded himself inside a home, police said. The suspect later turned himself into police.

Charges were pending early Friday, police said.
