One of two victims in Wednesday’s shooting at a North Side gas station died early this morning.

Max Vallejo, 26, of Bolingbrook died just after midnight Thursday at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Police say Vallejo and another man were sitting inside a tow truck parked at the Citgo, 3600 N. Ashland Ave., when another person shot both men during an argument at around 3:40 a.m. Wednesday. One victim managed to run across Ashland Avenue to Tai’s Til 4, 3611 N. Ashland Ave., to get help.

Police at the 19th District are reportedly reviewing surveillance camera images taken at the gas station during the fight; no arrests have been made.
