A man died hours after being shot Thursday in Little Village on the Southwest Side.
Officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert about 7:30 p.m. in the 3000 block of South Karlov Avenue and found 40-year-old Cesar Salamanca inside a crashed vehicle, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
He was found with a gunshot wound to the face and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead Friday morning, authorities said.
An autopsy conducted Saturday ruled his death a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.
No arrests have been reported. Area Central detectives are investigating.
