A man suffered a fatal gunshot to the head and two others were hurt when a shooting followed an argument that erupted at a sports bar Saturday in Harvey.
Kevin Guice, 29, of the 14000 block of South Tracy Avenue in Riverdale, was pronounced dead at Ingalls Memorial Hospital at 1:40 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
At 12:45 a.m., Guice was at the Press Box Club, 15420 Dixie Highway, when he began arguing with the suspect, according to a source.
The suspect left the sports bar, waited until Guice exited and fired into a crowd of people, fatally shooting Guice and wounding a second person, the source said. An autopsy Saturday found that Guice suffered a gunshot to the head and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.
A third person was run over while the suspect was fleeing the scene in a vehicle, the source said.
Samora Hicks, who identified herself as Guice’s sister, said Guice was defending himself from an attacker who yelled that he would shoot everyone after an argument between multiple groups in the club. Hicks said at least 6 shots were fired before her brother was hit.
Harvey police investigators are interviewing several people of interest, a spokeswoman said Saturday afternoon.
