Antonio Reyes, 38, who lived in the 1200 block of N. Campbell, was standing outside the bar at Division near Rockwell when he was shot. Reyes then jumped into his black Toyota in an attempt to drive himself to a hospital, according to a WGN TV report. However he did not make it, crashing his car into a post on the sidewalk.

Police found Reyes with multiple gunshots to his chest. He was transported to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital but was pronounced dead at 1:09 a.m. in the hospital, according to a Medical Examiner's report. 

A second man, 28, was shot in the hip and also transported to Stroger in serious condition. 

According to CPD, both men shot were in a verbal altercation with another man, presumably Lopez, when the shots were fired. 

With the WGN  camera rolling as Lopez was being arrested, he was heard telling police, "I was scared." 

Central Division Detectives are investigating.
