A man was killed in a shooting Friday in Altgeld Gardens on the Southeast Side.

Marcel O’Neal, 43, was walking on a sidewalk about 3:20 p.m. in the 700 block of East 131st Street when someone stepped out of a dark-colored car and shot him several times, according to Chicago police.

O’Neal was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 4:14 p.m., police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy conducted Saturday said he died of multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide.

O’Neal lived in the Golden Gate neighborhood.
