Antonio Galvan III

Galvan

They went by the nicknames "Fat Jose" and "Mont."

And investigators believe Antonio Galvan III had no clue what they had in store for him when they showed up at his McDonald Street home at 1:15 a.m. on Feb. 23.

The pair knocked on Galvan's door and gave their names when he asked who was there. Galvan then asked his brother, who also lived at the home, to remove their pit bull from the room.

As he opened the door, a gunshot rang out.

Galvan's brother ran to the door only to see the 28-year-old falling backward.

Medics later declared Galvan dead at the scene.

Originally from East Chicago, Galvan left behind three sons and a daughter as well as a host of siblings and cousins.

Fat Jose – later identified as 23-year-old Jose J. Lopez – and Mont – identified as 28-year-old Augustus Marshall – were both caught the morning of the shooting.

They fled the McDonald Street home and disappeared for several hours until being spotted at a Coldwater Road gas station.

The pair led police on a chase that culminated near Brooklyn and Taylor streets, where they set off a house alarm and forced an elderly woman from her home.

Lopez later told police that Marshall shot Galvan over a $2,000 drug debt, according to court records. Both are scheduled for separate trials on murder charges this month.
