A man, 18, was in a hallway of an apartment building in the 700 block of East 60th Street about 5 p.m. when three people approached him and one of them pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the chest, Chicago police said.

He was taken to University of Chicago Medical and was pronounced dead, police said.

About three hours later, officers arrested the teen boy after he was identified as one of the suspects who allegedly took part in the attack.
