An 18-year-old man was fatally shot Thursday in Marquette Park on the Southwest Side.

He was getting out of a vehicle about 11:50 p.m. in the 7100 block of South Francisco Avenue when two males walked up and fired shots at him, Chicago police said.

He was struck in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as being Armando Uribe. He lived in Cicero.

A woman arrived to the scene and grew distraught when she saw the body, saying the man was her son.

“That’s my son,” she said to the officers, who eventually covered the body with a sheet. “He’s just lying there!”

Area One detectives are investigating the shooting.
