Innocent Male Nurse in the Wrong Place Shot Killed in Little Village Gang War

(Sun Times Wire) A man was shot to death Tuesday in Little Village on the Southwest Side.

Frank Aguilar, 32, was walking about 11:30 p.m. in the 3700 block of West 32nd Street when someone in a gray SUV drove by and opened fire, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

He was shot in the chest and taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where he died, authorities said. Aguilar lived in West Englewood.

An autopsy found he died of multiple gunshot wounds, the medical examiner’s office said.

Shortly after the shooting, police placed two yellow evidence markers on a small stretch of 32nd Street that was roped off as a crime scene.

Aguilar was shot as he was headed home from a Misericordia nursing home, where he worked as a nurse, according to a fundraising page made by his sister, Chary Alcazar.

He “dedicated his life in helping others,” she wrote. He “was always selfless, kind and compassionate.”
