A man has been charged in connection with a shooting that left one man dead and another critically wounded late Friday after an argument over beer at a party in the Northwest Side Hermosa neighborhood.

Gumaro Torres, 32, of the 1800 block of North Pulaski Road, was charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and aggravated battery, all felonies, police said.

The shooting occurred about 11:30 p.m. Friday after a group of co-workers at a party in the 1800 block of North Pulaski Road started arguing about beer, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

The suspect left the party and returned with a handgun before shooting two men and pistol-whipping a third person, Greer said.

A 27-year-old man sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the body and was listed in critical condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, Greer said.

The person who was pistol-whipped was treated at the scene and released, Greer said.
