Dante J. Swanson was shot to death late Thursday while sitting in his car after getting off work in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side.
Someone walked up to the 28-year-old Swanson about 11:15 p.m. as he sat in the driver’s seat of his car, parked in front of the Hyde Park Seventh-Day Adventist Church in the 800 block of East 46th Street, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
The suspect fired repeatedly, striking Swanson several times across the body, police said. Swanson, of the 7900 block of South Carpenter, was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.
Swanson worked for FedEx, but it was not clear if robbery was the motive for the shooting. He had stopped in the neighborhood to visit family memebers after getting off work when he was attacked.
