A 72-year-old man was shot and killed in his gangway on the Far South Side early Saturday morning as he left a home for dialysis treatment.
The man's grandson was inside and heard the shots that killed his grandfather, who was identified by family as William Strickland, of the 400 block of East 95th Street.
The man was shot about 3:30 a.m. and pronounced dead about 4 a.m., according to authorities.
The motive appears to be robbery, police said, but detectives are still investigating.
Detectives remained at the scene, across from Chicago State University, into the morning.
Police taped off the northeast corner of 95th Street and Eberhart Avenue, surrounding the two houses between which the man was killed.
