CHICAGO — A witness to the fatal shooting of a man along Chicago’s busy Michigan Avenue Saturday night said the victim had just gotten into an argument about politics with his killer, reports CBS Chicago.

“There was some sort of political discussion going on,” said Marques Wilson, who told the station he saw the moments leading up to Peter Fabbri’s murder.

Bruno Fabbri says his brother was leaving a wine tasting around 7:30 p.m. with his girlfriend and sister when he got into a verbal fight with a stranger turned fatal. 

“They were arguing, and he pulled out a gun, and there was no more arguing because he shot my brother,” Bruno Fabbri told CBS Chicago. “He didn’t deserve this.”

The alleged shooter tried getting away on a bike, but Chicago police quickly caught up and detained him. Charges had not been filed as of late Sunday night.

Peter Fabbri, died at a hospital after being shot in the head. He was a father of two and the oldest of six siblings.
