A man who was critically wounded in a shooting early Sunday in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side has died.

About 4:15 a.m., officers responded to the 900 block of West 129th Place and found 41-year-old Norris Anderson with a gunshot wound to his chest, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died, authorities said.

Responding officers saw a male suspect walk away from the scene of the shooting and get into a blue minivan, police said. They followed the suspect when he drove off but lost sight of him when he got out of the minivan and ran away.

Anderson lived in the same block as the shooting, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Area South detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
