MORGAN PARK— A 24-year-old man was shot dead while watching his daughter in Morgan Park Friday afternoon.
Kyle Hogan, of the 11800 block of South Campbell Avenue, and his 3-year-old daughter were sitting in the living room of a friend's home in the 1100 block of West 111th Place when he was shot and killed, a friend of the dead man said.
After Hogan was shot, his daughter went to a neighbor's house for help, said Hogan's aunt, Mikka, who declined to give her last name. She said the little girl was "hysterical."
"Something's wrong with Daddy," the daughter said, according to Mikka.
The house where Hogan was shot is owned by a friend of the family who was not home when the shooting occurred, neighbors said. Hogan asked the family if he could stay in the house while he waited for a family member to pick him and his daughter up, a friend who declined to give his name said.
"He knows whoever it is," the friend said, adding, "It ain't safe out here."
Residents of the area described him as "a loving person" who was committed to his daughter.
"Every time I saw him, he had his daughter. I never saw him without her," said a neighbor who gave her name as Kesha. "I can't see how someone could shoot him in cold blood like that."
Police said Hogan was fatally shot in the head about 3:10 p.m. He was pronounced dead at 3:40 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
