2 guns found in car after driver is shot dead in West Ridge: Chicago police

Chicago police are investigating the murder of a 22-year-old man who was shot while driving in West Ridge overnight.

The man was driving in the 2600 block of West Glenlake when the gunman approached and fired shots into his car, a CPD media statement said.

The victim crashed their Honda Civic into several parked cars and died from multiple gunshot wounds at the scene.

Investigators found two handguns inside the victim’s vehicle, according to the media statement.

An officer who reviewed video footage said it appeared that the gunman was standing near the intersection of Glenlake and Talman before the victim arrived. He then stepped out and began firing as the victim’s car approached.

Witnesses said the shooter ran from the scene, but no description of him was available.
