Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man sitting in his car Wednesday morning in south suburban Midlothian.

Witnesses said Darius Minter was sitting in his dark colored SUV in an apartment complex parking lot at 147th Street and Turner Avenue, warming the car up so he could drive his wife to work, when gunfire erupted at 7 a.m.

Minter was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Been in Midlothian 23 years right in this area…there’s never been a killing like that,” said a woman who lives nearby.

Cook County Sheriff’s crime scene technicians combed through the scene and the bullet riddled vehicle looking for clues as detectives canvassed the apartment complex.

Police are still gathering information to track down the offender. No one is in custody.
