A 39-year-old man was shot dead in a vehicle Friday in East Garfield Park on the West Side.

Travis Thompson was in a parked vehicle about 10:15 p.m. in the 3300 block of West Monroe Street when someone got out of a red or maroon four-door car and opened fire, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
