A man was fatally shot in the head while standing on a porch Monday night in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side, according to Chicago Police.

Dayvy Rivas, 43, was on the porch of a home in the 300 block of North Lorel about 11:10 p.m. when three people came out of a gangway and started fighting, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

During the fight, one of the people involved took out a gun and shot Rivas, who remained on the porch, authorities said.

He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

Rivas lived in the Northwest Side Belmont Cragin neighborhood.

No suspects were in custody as Area North detectives investigate.
