A man died two days after he was wounded in a shooting in the Archer Heights neighborhood on the city’s Southwest Side.

Jose Medina, 47, was in the 4900 block of South Kilbourn Avenue around 11 p.m. last Friday when someone fired shots, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Medina suffered a gunshot wound to the chin and was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

He died Sunday of a gunshot wound to the head and neck, according to the medical examiner’s office. His death was ruled a homicide.

No arrest was made.
