22-year-old Fred Anderson fatally shot during argument with two others in Chatham

Fred Anderson was killed and another man, possibly his father, was wounded in a shooting Thursday afternoon in the South Side Chatham neighborhood.

Anderson, 22, got into an argument with two people about noon in the 8100 block of South Ellis, Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

One of the others pulled out a gun and fired shots, striking Anderson and a 41-year-old man, police said.

Anderson was shot in the abdomen and was pronounced dead at the scene, police and the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Friday found he died of multiple gunshot wounds, and his death was ruled a homicide.

The older man was shot in the shoulder, police said. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, but his condition was not immediately known.

Unconfirmed scanner reports said the victims were father and son.
