Fredrick Edmond, 25, was shot in his head in the 1000 block of 10th Place, where police later found a handgun and a rifle, authorities said.

Deputies responded about 8:05 p.m. to a call of gunfire and found the man with a gunshot wound, the Cook County sheriff’s office said in a statement. Paramedics took him to Franciscan Health Dyer, where he died.
