A south suburban man was shot and killed after leaving a club where he was celebrating his birthday. The gunfire broke out early Sunday in a parking lot near 142nd and Chicago Road in Dolton.

The shooting left 22-year-old Cortez Moutry dead and five others wounded.

Investigators believe the shooting may have been the result of some kind of argument between the victims and the shooter. Moutry turned 22 Friday and was out celebrating when he was killed.

"you know how they are, they wanted to celebrate the entire weekend. So he was going out with his friends to the lounge, Ricky's, and they ended his life," said Samella Moutry, victim's relative.

Police do not have anyone in custody.
