A man was shot in the head by a friend Friday evening in a Bronzeville neighborhood shootout on the South Side.

Montavious Dickson, 19, was with two other people at 7:54 p.m. when they started shooting at another group in the 500 block of East 47th Street, according to Chicago police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

During the shooting, Dickson was struck in the head by a bullet fired by one of the people in his group, police said.

He was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he died Saturday afternoon, according to the medical examiner’s office. An autopsy Monday ruled his death a homicide. He lived in the neighborhood.
