A 20-year-old man died and another was wounded in a shooting last week in suburban Chicago Heights.

Jesus Cruz Mosso was shot about 8:30 p.m. May 1 in the 300 block of East 22nd Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was pronounced dead at 2:04 p.m. Monday at Stroger Hospital, the medical examiner’s office said.

Chicago Heights police said officers found Mosso in the passenger seat of a maroon four-door Chevrolet Malibu which was stopped in front of the police department. Another man, also 20, was sitting in the passenger seat with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

Both were taken to Franciscan Health Hospital, but Mosso was later airlifted to Stroger, police said. An autopsy found Mosso died of his gunshot wound and ruled his death a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.

Officers located the scene of the shooting in the area of 22nd Street and Portland Avenue, police said.
