A 62-year-old man has died a day after he was wounded in a shooting over the weekend in the East Garfield Park neighborhood.

Benjamin Barber was shot at 6:10 a.m. Saturday in the 3900 block of West Monroe Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was on a sidewalk outside his home when someone came up, took out a handgun and opened fire, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Spicuzza said.

Barber was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 9:48 a.m. Sunday, the medical examiner’s office said. Autopsy results showed he died of multiple gunshot wounds.

No one was in custody as of Monday, Spicuzza said.

Barber was one of 25 people shot in Chicago over the weekend.
