A man was shot to death Saturday night in Woodlawn on the South Side.

The 23-year-old was walking about 9:35 p.m. in the 6200 block of South Eberhart Avenue when someone fired shots, Chicago police said.

He was struck in the shoulder and collapsed to the ground, police said. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Walter D. Seamster. An autopsy conducted Sunday ruled his death a homicide.

No one is in custody as Area One detectives investigate.
