February 17, 2010

A man was shot and killed in his car Tuesday night while stopping to talk to two men on the near-north side. The shooting happened on 39th Street near Graceland Avenue. A female passenger said soon after the victim stopped his car, one of the men on the street shot the driver in the chest, killing him. The vehicle rolled down 39th Street, struck a tree and a pole, and almost hit a pedestrian before coming to rest. The passenger was not hurt, and the victim’s name has not been released.
