A 32-year-old man died after someone shot him in the face, chest and arms in the Gage Park neighborhood late Wednesday.

Federico Martinez was shot in an alley east of California Avenue just south of 54th Street about 10 p.m., according to authorities. He lived a couple houses south of where he was killed in the same block. 

Someone in a light-colored Ford F150 with tinted windows shot him while he stood with a woman, police said.

Martinez was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition but was pronounced dead there about 10:45 p.m. The man's family gathered there after he was shot.

Eight detectives arrived at the scene and began their investigation early Thursday morning, their unmarked police cars crowding the narrow block of 54th Street between California and Fairfield avenues. 

A young woman wept next to red tape on the south side of the crime scene.

A spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office wasn't able to say whether they had been notified of the death.
