Man Killed in Shooting, Crash in South Chicago: Police

A man was killed in a shooting and crash that ended with his vehicle flipped upside down on the road in the South Chicago neighborhood late Sunday night, according to police.

Authorities said the incident took place at around 11:23 p.m. in the 7900 block of South Luella Avenue.

Officers responding to a ShotSpotter alert found a 25-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the chest, sitting in the driver's seat of an upside down vehicle, according to Chicago police.

He was taken to the University of Chicago Hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police. The Cook County medical examiner's office could not immediately confirm the fatality and further details, including his identity, were not available.

Police said the circumstances of the shooting were unknown, but that it appeared that the car had struck several parked cars before flipping over.

A witness at the scene said she heard gunshots and was shocked at what she saw out her window.

"It was pretty scary, I never in my life - it looked like somebody threw that car. And it's really sad because he was in bad shape," Latasha McGee said.

No one is in custody in connection with the shooting, according to police, who continue to investigate.
