Logan Square shooting: Man critically wounded by person on motorcycle dies from injuries

A 19-year-old man who was shot by a person on a motorcycle back earlier this year on Chicago's Northwest Side has died from his injuries.

On Aug. 20, around 2:44 a.m., police say the male victim was traveling in the rear seat of a vehicle in the 3400 block of W. Fullerton Ave. when he was shot by an offender who was on a motorcycle.

The victim was struck in the neck and taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital in critical condition, police said. He died Wednesday of a gunshot wound, according to an autopsy released Friday by the medical examiner’s office.

Alex Alvarado, of the Humboldt Park neighborhood, was described by family as a "wonderful son, brother, and friend" who could make anyone smile and "brighten up the whole room."

"His energy is like no other, only seeing the positive in everything. Alex has always wanted to be someone that could make a change in the world," his family wrote in a GoFundMe created to cover funeral costs.

"Alex is a unique soul: everyone who ever met him knew what an amazing person he is," the family wrote. "He is generous, kind hearted, gentle and has so much to offer to this world until it was stripped away from him."

The fundraiser had collected more than $5,500 as of Friday.

No arrests have been made in the shooting. The investigation is ongoing.
