A 29-year-old man was fatally shot inside a vehicle Sunday evening in Grand Crossing on the South Side.

He was identified as Quinyon M. Norman Jr. of the South Loop by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Officers found him with gunshot wounds inside a Chevy Malibu about 7:10 p.m. in the 6800 block of South Stony Avenue, Chicago police said.

He was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide, saying he died of a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Police said he was found alone inside the vehicle and there were no witnesses.

He was one of at least 30 people shot over holiday weekend gun violence in Chicago.

There is no one in custody as Area One detectives conduct a homicide investigation.
