A 20-year-old resident of Evanston’s Fifth Ward was fatally shot over the weekend in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood.

Chicago police say Agustine Esteban, 20, who lived in the 2000 block of Dodge Avenue, got into an argument with two men Saturday afternoon in the 1700 block of West Estes Avenue in Chicago.

Police say the men left, but returned to the scene about 6 p.m. and fired several shots at Mr. Esteban from their car as they drove by.

The Chicago Tribune reports Mr. Esteban was taken to St. Francis Hospital where he was pronounced dead about 6:30 p.m.
