A 29-year-old man is dead after being shot during a brawl in Roscoe Village early Sunday. Police are questioning several witnesses and the apparent shooter.

Someone fired shots as the man and at least one other individual fought on the 2300 block of West School 3:20 a.m., police said. The victim reportedly suffered gunshot wounds to his chest, abdomen and left arm. He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where doctors pronounced him dead at 4:07 a.m.

The victim, identified by a source as Mario Dingillo, drove a vehicle with Wisconsin license plates and is listed online as a resident of the Kenosha area. His Facebook page, last updated in 2013, lists a residence in Waukegan, Illinois.

A witness described a chaotic scene after the shooting, which occurred during a “huge brawl” that may have started at a nearby business.

An officer said they found Dingillo wearing an empty holster and no firearm was found in his possession. Shell casings from least two different calibers of ammunition and one live round were found at the scene.

About 20 minutes after the shooting, a man who police suspect is the shooter arrived at the Area North police headquarters, less than a block from the crime scene. Police are also interviewing at least four witnesses at Area North.

One of the individuals being questioned is a security guard, however, it is not clear if he is a witness or the suspected shooter
