A man was shot to death Saturday afternoon at a bus stop near a CTA Red Line station in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.

About 1:15 p.m., 23-year-old Deonte L. Thomas was standing at an upper level bus stop near the 69th Street Red Line station, 15 W. 69th Street, when he was approached by another male, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

During an ensuing argument, the male pulled out a gun and shot Thomas in his chest, police said.

Thomas was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:53 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the West Englewood neighborhood.

Area South detectives were investigating.
