A man was shot to death Sunday afternoon in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, police said.

Larry Demond, 21, was shot when someone he knew entered the home he was in, argued with him and then shot him in the chest at 12:07 p.m. in the 7300 block of South Bell, according to Chicago Police.

The shooter then ran away, police said.

Demond was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 1:03 p.m., authorities said.

No one was in custody as Area Central detectives investigated the shooting.
