A man was killed in a shooting Saturday in Englewood on the South Side.

He was sitting in a Chevrolet Tahoe about 6:50 a.m. in the first block of West 57th Street when someone fired shots, according to Chicago police.

The 30-year-old was hit in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
