17-year-old Antonio Monteza shot to death at Rogers Park gas station

Seventeen-year-old Antonio Monteza was shot to death early Tuesday in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side.

The boy was hanging out with friends at a gas station about 2:40 a.m. in the 7500 block of North Sheridan, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A male suspect walked up and pulled a gun, according to police. Monteza tried to run, but was shot in the head and abdomen in the 1400 block of West Howard.

He was taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was pronounced dead at 3:26 a.m., authorities said.

He lived a few blocks away in the same neighborhood.

No one was in custody early Wednesday as Area North detectives conduct a homicide investigation.
