A man was shot to death Tuesday in south suburban Calumet Park.

Javell D. Brown, 27, was shot in the 1100 block of West 127th Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Four people got out of a silver vehicle about 2:15 p.m. and started shooting in his direction, according to Calumet Park Police Chief Gerard Corrigan. He was hit in the back while running away.

Brown was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 2:55 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Wednesday ruled his death a homicide.

No other injuries were reported and no arrests have been made, according to police.

Corrigan said investigators are “working on several leads.”
