A man was found shot to death Thursday night at a park in Evanston.
Servando Hamros, 29, was found shot lying along the park’s canal by responding officers about 9:05 p.m. in the 2100 block of McCormick Boulevard, according to Evanston police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
An initial investigation indicates Hamros was walking in the park with his 7-year-old daughter playing Pokémon GO when he “had a confrontation” with at least one person. Hamros then was shot moments later, police said. Shots were not fired at his daughter.
A Cook County medical examiner’s autopsy said Hamros died of a gunshot wound to the head.
Officials said McCormick Boulevard between Bridge Street and Golf Road was closed through the Friday morning rush hour because of the investigation.
No further updates were immediately available.
