Garcel Woods of west suburban Westchester found shot to death in alley in Englewood

Garcel S. Woods of west suburban Westchester, found dead Thursday afternoon in an alley in the South Side Englewood neighborhood, had been shot to death, an autopsy showed.

Officers were called about 12:45 p.m. to a report of a person down in an alley in the 6300 block of South Parnell, Chicago Police said.

Woods, 30, was found dead in the alley, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Police initially said she had suffered puncture wounds to his chest and hand; and it appeared the body had “been there for a considerable amount of time.”

An autopsy Friday found he died from multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Police are conducting a homicide investigation.
