One man was fatally injured after a shooting that happened in Maywood recently, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

John Garza, 35, of Maywood, died from multiple gunshot wounds after a shooting that happened on Sixth Avenue and Lake Street in Maywood.

According to a Chicago Sun-Times report, Garza “was outside a family member’s home about 11:30 p.m.,” on July 4 when the shooting happened.

Garza was transported to Loyola University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead on Friday at 4:35 a.m., according to the medical examiner’s report. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that, so far, police have no one in custody.

An attempt on Saturday afternoon to reach Maywood Police for more information on the shooting was unsuccessful. VFP

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly noted that the shooting happened on July 5, instead of July 4. VFP regrets the error.
