He had clearly already been shot. So he had been shot somewhere else...Probably trying to get to the hospital, going northbound on Michigan. He had told the officers several times, ‘I have been shot, I have been shot, help me.’ They started their first aid and life saving measures. He was taken to the hospital, but unfortunately he has passed away,” said Dave Wells with Metro Homicide.
