A man was shot to death Saturday in southwest suburban Joliet.

About 9 p.m., a man driving a gray Hyundai Sonata crashed into the brick wall of a garage in the 400 block of Grover Street, according to Joliet police. When authorities pulled the man out of the vehicle, they realized he suffered gunshot wounds to the chest.

DaSean C. Clark, 21, was taken to Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, where he was pronounced dead at 9:41 p.m., according to police and the Will County coroner’s office.

Clark, who lived in Joliet, suffered multiple gunshot wounds, a preliminary autopsy revealed Monday. The coroner’s office did not provide additional information and the final cause and manner of death will be determined at a later date, pending police, toxicological and autopsy reports.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Joliet detectives at (815) 724-3020.
