Evanston police say a Skokie man was found shot to death in a parked car on Fowler Avenue just north of Main Street Thursday night.


Police crime scene trucks were still at Main and Fowler this noon.

Commander James Pickett says a resident called police just before 11 p.m. to report that an occupied black vehicle with a broken window and its brake lights on was parked on the street.

Responding officers found the victim dead, sitting in the driver’s seat, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

The victim has been identified as Knoxley C. Morrison of Skokie, who was four days shy of his 28th birthday.

Police say they have no information about a possible suspect in the incident, and the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force is conducting the investigation.

Update 4:10 p.m. 1/15/10:

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office says Morrison died of multiple gunshot wounds and has ruled the shooting a homicide. The medical examiner’s office provided an address for the victim of 8811 S. State St. in Chicago. There was no immediate explanation of the discrepancy between that address and the police report that Morrison lived in Skokie.
