CHICAGO -- Chicago police say a teenager was shot dead in front of his mother and younger brother outside a laundromat on the city's South Side.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office identified the boy as 17-year-old Jalen Stogner.

He was at a laundromat in the Back of the Yards neighborhood Friday with his mother and 10-year-old brother. Police say the teen got into an argument with a man in the parking lot.

The man pulled a gun, and Strogner tried to run away. But he was shot in the back.

Police have made no arrests.
