A man was shot to death Thursday evening in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.
Lonnie Smith, 47, was standing in front of his porch about 8:30 p.m. when someone opened fire from a passing vehicle in the 5500 block of South Lafayette, Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.
Smith was shot in the back of the head and initially taken in critical condition to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead, authorities said. He lived in the same block where he was shot.
No one was in custody Thursday night as Area Central detectives investigated.
