A 19-year-old man who was wounded in a shooting last month in Back of the Yards on the South Side has died.

Ivan Almaguer was pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m. Sunday at Kindred Hospital Chicago North, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

On June 1, he was in the 4700 block of South Ada Street with two other people when someone fired shots from a passing gray SUV, Chicago police said.

Almaguer was struck in the head and hand, officials sad. An 18-year-old man was shot in the foot and the third person suffered a graze wound to their thigh.

An autopsy found Almaguer died of his gunshot wounds and ruled his death a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.

No arrests have been reported.
