A 38-year-old man was shot dead Sunday in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.

Two males approached the man about 9:10 p.m. in the 2600 block of West 39th Place and tried to fight him, Chicago police said.

As the man tried to run away, a third male walked up and fired a shot, striking him in the back, police said. He was pronounced dead at St. Anthony Hospital.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Steven Garcia. He lived in Brighton Park. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide.

No one is in custody as Area One detectives investigate.
