Police say two men got into an argument and started shooting at each other. Medrano was killed, and a 42-year-old woman was shot in the hand.

One of the gunmen, a 38-year-old man, was shot in the buttocks and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, in critical condition, authorities said.

However, the second gunman can be seen in surveillance video running off.

From surveillance video, investigators have identified a person of interest in Medrano's death. Anyone with information should call Cook County CrimeStoppers or Chicago police.
