“The victim was walking in the park with his daughter. While walking in the park, the victim had what appeared to be a confrontation with at least one other subject.

Hamros died from a gunshot wound to the head, according to a Cook County medical examiner’s autopsy. His daughter saw the shooting but was not harmed.
