A man was fatally shot while driving southbound on North Lake Shore Drive early Wednesday morning when another driver pulled up next to him and someone in the car opened fire.
Police shut down parts of Lake Shore Drive Belmont and Chicago avenues for a few hours Wednesday morning after the shooting around 3:45 a.m. Police say the victim of the shooting was a 25-year-old Hispanic man. His car struck the center median after the shooting, and emergency responders transported him to Illinois Masonic Hospital with fatal gunshot wounds to his chest.
Two other people, a man and a woman, were also in the car at the time of the shooting, but were not injured, police say. Area North police officers are investigating, and no one is in custody as of Wednesday morning.
