A south suburban man was fatally shot in the head Saturday evening in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

Lashawn C. Haynes, 40, was shot at 6:13 p.m. in the 5500 block of South Shields, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Witnesses told police he was walking down the street when a black or gray SUV drove by and a passenger in the front seat fired five to six shots, striking him once in the head, police said. The SUV drove away south on Shields.

Haynes was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition and was later pronounced dead, authorities said. He lived in Dolton.
