A 37-year-old man died after a friend tried to drive him to a hospital following his injury in a shooting at a bar in the Washington Heights neighborhood on the Far South Side, officials said.
Officers encountered a car speeding east on 103rd Street at Halsted Street just after 3 a.m. and when they stopped it, found a friend was trying to drive Clifford Evans to Roseland Hospital from a bar in the 1100 block of West 103rd, Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez said.
Evans' friend told police he had been shot in the chest during a dispute at the bar, police said.
Evans, of the 6300 block of South Talman Avenue, was taken to Roseland Hospital and declared dead at 3:37 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office said.
Witnesses told investigators that Evans had been with several friends at the bar when he got into a dispute with another man at the bar, who shot him and ran out, police said.
Calumet Area detectives were investigating, and no one was in custody, police said.
Authorities originally had said Evans was 35, but later corrected that information, saying he was born in September 1972.
