CHICAGO — Police are looking for a white SUV involved in a possible case of fatal road rage in the Lakeview neighborhood.

Just before 4:15 p.m. Thursday, a man, 53, was in a vehicle in the 3700 block of North Ashland Avenue when a white SUV reportedly approached the victim and fired shots.

The man was shot once in the neck and was transported to Illinois Masonic in critical condition. He later passed away, police said.

Southbound lanes of Ashland were blocked for four hours after the shooting. Two people stepped in and tried to save his life.

"He basically stopped the bleeding and started administering chest compressions. I checked the pulse and helped secure the scene,” witness Kevin Dusenberry said.

Dusenberry said police arrived quickly and were “dialed in.”

“(CPD) has been incredible once they started and arrived on the scene… you could really tell they were dialed in," Dusenberry said. "I hope to God they find the guy that did it,” he said.

No suspects are in custody. Area North Detectives are investigating.
