A man was shot to death early Wednesday during a fight in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

James Posey, 21, was shot in the head at 5:17 p.m. in the 5200 block of West Gladys when another male pulled out a gun and fired shots during a confrontation, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Posey was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. He lived in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

No one was in custody Thursday as Area North detectives conducted a homicide investigation.
