Maywood police were investigating the death early this morning of a man shot in the west suburb late Wednesday.
Dead was Brandon Cannon, 32, of the first block of South 17th Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. Cannon was shot about 11:50 p.m. near 150 S. 12th Ave., said Maywood Police Chief Tim Curry, correcting earlier information that Cannon may have been shot at home.
Cannon was shot multiple times in the head and neck, Curry said.
Cannon was declared dead at 12:07 a.m. at Westlake Hospital in Melrose Park, according to the medical examiner's office.
Curry would not say if police were questioning anyone in the shooting, but said that "We've got good information" on the attack and were pursuing leads in the case.
An autopsy ruled Cannon's death was a homicide and determined that he died as a result of multiple gun shot wounds, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
