CHICAGO — A man was shot and killed while driving in on the Far North Side, according to Chicago police.

In a brief media statement, CPD said the 23-year-old was driving in the 6200 block of North Francisco when someone approached his vehicle and shot him around 10:50 p.m. After being shot in the chest, the victim drove until crashing in the 3100 block of West Devon a short time later.

A witness said they saw two men wearing face masks and black clothing flee the scene in a black sedan. The police, however, did not release descriptions of the shooter or say how they escaped.

Officers who responded to the call said they found a firearm with the victim. Officers placed evidence markers next to about a dozen shell casings at the shooting scene. They also found an ammunition magazine there.
