The attack happened late Thursday night around 10:15 p.m. Friends say they were celebrating the 45-year-old’s birthday with him at his Tras Bambalinas School, located near 43rd and archer in the city’s Brighton Park neighborhood.

Witnesses say it was after Fuentes and some friends got into his car that a man suddenly appeared and ordered him out of the car.

Fuentes refused a couple of times, but when the attacker showed a gun. In an attempt to protect his friends, Fuentes got out and that’s when he was shot in the head three times.

Although some of the victim’s friends say they believe he was targeted because nothing was taken, police continue to investigate if the shooting was the result of a botched robbery or carjacking. h/t abc7chicago
