A 30-year-old man was fatally shot early Thursday in a drive-by at a gas station in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

He was identified as David Walker of West Englewood by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Someone fired shots from a passing vehicle at the man about 2:15 a.m. as he sat in a parked car at a gas station in the first block of North Kilbourn Avenue, Chicago police said.

Walker was struck in the head and back, and pronounced dead at the scene, police and the medical examiner’s office said.

Area Four detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.

It was the second shooting in that same block in April. On April 1, a man was shot as he stood on a sidewalk, police said. A vehicle pulled up at 4 a.m., two people exited and fired shots, striking the 34-year-old in his back.
