About 2 a.m., 37-year-old Dean A. Martinez and two other males were walking west on 159th Street when they ran into three other males near Finch Avenue, according to Sean Howard, spokesman for the city of Harvey, and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. A confrontation then ensued and someone opened fire.

Martinez, of Harvey, was shot three times in the chest and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 2:16 a.m., authorities said.

The other male suffered a gunshot wound to the arm that wasn’t believed to be life-threatening, Howard said.

No further information was immediately made available.
