    A man was fatally shot after opening fire on Chicago police early Saturday morning in the city’s North Side.

    The man was driving east on Wilson Avenue in the Albany Park neighborhood when he hit an SUV and crossed Kimball Avenue, striking several parked cars before coming to a stop.

    A police car witnessed the erratic driving and got behind the vehicle when the driver began firing at the officers, officials said. They then returned fire, fatally shooting the man.
