CHICAGO (WLS) -- A 40-year-old Chicago man shot and gravely wounded Sunday night outside a South Side Red Line station has died, Chicago police said Wednesday morning.

Binion got into an argument with another man shortly after 8:30 p.m. along 69th Street in Englewood, according to CPD. That's when the man pulled out a firearm and shot him, police said.

Binion suffered a gunshot wound to the thigh and was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center in grave condition.
