A man was shot and killed Monday in Lake View on the North Side, police said.

Victor Ochoa, 38, was a passenger in an SUV when a male in a white Dodge Magnum fired shots, striking him in the head and shoulder, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. The shooting happened about 2:28 a.m. in the 2900 block of North Broadway Avenue.

Ochoa was pronounced dead at Saint Joseph Hospital, authorities said.

An autopsy conducted Tuesday concluded that Ochoa died from multiple gunshot wounds. His death has been ruled a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.

Minutes before, there was an argument in the parking lot of a retail store in the 3200 block of North Sheffield Avenue, police said. There, the male in the Dodge showed a weapon to people in the SUV. The driver of the SUV fled, and the male followed in the Dodge.

No one is in custody as Area North detectives investigate.

Just over a week ago, a woman was shot by someone on a bicycle in Lake View.
