A 33-year-old man was fatally shot in the Washington Park neighborhood after he apparently exchanged words with someone in a van Wednesday evening, police said.
The shooting happened at about 7:52 p.m. on the 100 block of West 59th Street, police said.
Charles Bush was walking eastbound on 59th Street when he said something to someone inside a black minivan, according to authorities. The minivan then pulled over and someone from inside the van ran out and fired two shots at Bush, police said.
Bush was shot in the abdomen and lower torso and was taken in critical condition to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County where he later died.
After the person fired the shots the person ran south and jumped back into the van, which then fled.
Early, the shooting was said to be on the 500 block of West 59th Street, but that information was incorrect.
