A 48-year-old man is dead after he and a man he used to work with got into an argument in Maywood that ended with the second man facing charges for running the 48-year-old down, police said.

Police were called to a parking lot of a Popeyes restaurant, 1019 W. Roosevelt Rd., about 6:20 p.m. Saturday after receiving a report about two men fighting, said Maywood Police Chief Tim Curry.

When police arrived, they found Tyrone Carter unresponsive on the ground after having been struck by a motor vehicle, police said.

Carter was taken to Loyola Hospital in Maywood where he was pronounced dead at 6:38 p.m., Curry said.

An autopsy Sunday determined that Carter died from injuries sustained in the incident and his death was ruled a homicide, according to officials from the Cook County medical examiner's office.

"This incident ended tragically as a result of a violent encounter between both parties just minutes prior to this incident," Curry said.

A 53-year-old Broadview man is in custody and is expected to be charged in connection with the incident, police said.

Police said Carter lived in Chicago but according to the Cook County medical examiner's office Carter had a Broadview address.

Curry said he did not know what the two men had been fighting about but said the two men had both previously worked together at the Hines VA Hospital, police said.
