Police said the man was shot in the head by someone on foot around 12:30 p.m. in the 4800-block of W. Walton in the Austin neighborhood.
The Cook County medical examiner's office identified the victim as Denzel Thornton, 25.
Sources told ABC7 the man was a nutrition support compliance officer who worked at McNair, among other schools.
