Arturo Munoz.

A 17-year-old Evanston Township High School Student was shot to death early this morning in the West Ridge neighborhood on Chicago’s north side.

Police say Arturo Munoz, a senior at ETHS, was standing in an alley in the 6400 block of North Hamilton Avenue about 2:50 a.m. when someone fired shots, striking Munoz in the back.

He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston where he was pronounced dead.

The high school says it plans to offer grief counseling in a virtual format Tuesday and that students can reach out to social workers at the school for support.

Friends posting on social media said Munoz was a graduate of Nichols Middle School.
