The coroner has identified an 18-year-old man who died after he was wounded in a shooting outside an apartment building in Waukegan Thursday afternoon.
An autopsy performed Friday on Kyron Goode, 18, of Waukegan, showed he died from a gunshot wound to the chest, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek.
The Waukegan Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 2:33 p.m. Thursday to the 500 block of South Genesee Street for a report of a shooting.
Officers arrived and located Goode, who was reported to have been shot in the face and chest, at the Barwell Manor Apartments.
The 18-year-old man had been outside when the shooting occurred, according to a police report.
Officers found Goode inside an apartment when they arrived.

He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital.
Evidence markers were seen placed over numerous spent shell casings in the roadway on South Avenue.
Some of the apartments in the complex had also been struck by the gunfire, the report said.
Police officials have not said yet whether any suspects have been identified or are in custody.
