Paul Pagan, 32, was charged Monday in the death of Peter Fabbri, 54, of Berwyn, police said.
Pagan has more than 30 arrests on his record and was convicted twice for pointing a gun during an argument, police said. He was wanted on a warrant for an earlier gun crime when he killed Fabbri, according to First Deputy Superintendent Kevin Navarro,
Fabbri was walking with two women around 7:35 p.m. Saturday when he got into a dispute with Pagan at the northeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Monroe Drive, police said.
The altercation became physical and Pagan shot Fabbri in the head, police said. Fabbri was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital a day later.
Fabbri's sister, Shelly Fabbri, said she chased the shooter as he fled on a bike.
"I chased him through the street, tried to hold the bike down," she told reporters. "His girlfriend comes and punched me and ripped my shirt. I wind up on the ground and another security guard came to help me and call the police."
Diane White, a security guard at the School of the Art Institute, said she was crossing Monroe toward the park when she saw two men scuffling with each other and heard a shot.
"As I came across (the street), I saw them fighting over here," White said. "At first I heard a 'bang' like a firecracker. Then I saw a gentleman fall," she said. "I'm like, 'Oh man, somebody got shot.' "
Fabbri's niece, Nina Parks, said she was with her mother, Fabbri and his girlfriend at a wine-tasting when her uncle was shot.
"My uncle ... was a huge-hearted man and was always there for anyone if he could be," she said on a GoFundMe page that had raised more than $4,000 by midafternoon Monday.
