A 28-year-old Hispanic man was shot to death Thursday morning at approximately 2 a.m. in the 1200 block of N. Greenview in an attempted carjacking in Pulaski Park. 

The victim was dropping off a female acquaintance when another male exited a nearby white vehicle and attempted to confiscate the car, say the Chicago Police. 

Unwilling to give up his car, the victim was shot in the torso, say police. The victim tried to drive away but crashed into a parked vehicle on the east side of Greenview at Potomac. 

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. There is no further information available at this time.
