Oscar Clay shot to death during ‘domestic’ argument on block where he lived in Austin

A “domestic-related” argument in the West Side Austin neighborhood Monday afternoon left Oscar L. Clay dead.

The 52-year-old Clay got into an argument with a 27-year-old man in the 1700 block of North Narragansett at 1:32 p.m., according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The younger man pulled out a handgun at some point and shot Clay, who lived in the same block as the shooting, several times, according to authorities.

He was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:45 p.m. An autopsy Tuesday found he died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Police said the shooting was domestic in nature, but did not provide further details. The shooter was not in custody as of Tuesday morning.
