A man died from a shooting late Saturday in the Gage Park neighborhood on the South Side.

At 10:43 p.m., 21-year-old Juan Cruz was driving east on the 2700 block of West 58th Street when gunfire entered his vehicle and caused him to careen into a parked vehicle, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Cruz was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center with a bullet in his left shoulder, authorities said, and was pronounced dead at 11:23 p.m. He lived in the same neighborhood.

Yellow crime tape cordoned off the street as Area Central police were investigating the homicide. His black Chrysler minivan stood by curb with the back window punched out from the bullets.
