A 27-year-old man was killed in a drive-by Saturday in Bronzeville on the South Side.

About 6:40 p.m., the man was inside a vehicle in the 200 block of East 41st. Street when a black SUV following from behind drove up beside him and someone inside opened fire, Chicago police said. The SUV fled the scene westbound on 41st Street.

An autopsy released Sunday found he died of multiple gunshot wounds, the medical examiner’s office said.
