A man died after he was shot and crashed his vehicle Tuesday morning in the West Side Austin neighborhood, according to Chicago Police.

At 8:24 a.m., Apache White, 47, was inside a vehicle during a drug sale when someone walked up with a gun and shot him in the head and chest in the first block of South Lockwood, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

White drove off from the shooting, but collided with another vehicle about a block away, causing his vehicle to flip over near Monroe Street and Lockwood Avenue, authorities said.

He was taken to Loretto Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8:35 a.m., according to authorities. He lived in the Galewood neighborhood.

An autopsy Wednesday found White died of a gunshot wound to the chest and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.

A second person who was in the vehicle with White was not hurt, police said.
