A man was shot and killed Monday morning while he sat in a parked car on Chicago’s South Side.

Around 9 am, police say the 39-year-old man was sitting in the driver’s seat at the 7000 block of South Halsted Street in the Englewood neighborhood when he was approached by two other men.

The two offenders pulled out guns and began firing shots at the victim, police said.


The victim was struck multiple times in his left shoulder, neck and arm. He was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The two gunmen fled the scene and remain at large, police said.

The investigation is ongoing.
