The man was approached by a suspect who shot him in the chest during the hold-up, police said.

A 19-year-old man was fatally shot during a robbery attempt Friday in Gresham on the South Side.

He was walking just before 10 p.m. in the 8500 block of South Carpenter Street when an armed male suspect approached him from a gangway and announced a robbery, Chicago police said.

The man told the suspect he didn’t have anything and was then shot in the chest, police said. The suspect ran off, and the man was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office hasn’t released details about his death.

No one is in custody as Area South detectives investigate.
