An unidentified man was fatally shot in his head late Tuesday night while sitting in an SUV on Detroit's west side, police said.

The fatal shooting took place at 11:58 p.m. on the 7300 block of Artesian, said Officer Holly Lowe, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman. That's just north of West Warren and west of the Southfield Freeway.

Police say the victim was found with a gunshot wound to his head, while sitting behind the wheel of a 2004 black Ford Explorer. Police have not yet been able to identify the man, nor was an estimate offered as to his age.

A witness saw a man standing near the victim's vehicle, firing shots, but no description of the suspect has been offered. Police are investigating.

Tuesday night's homicide is the second fatal shooting on Artesian since Saturday, when a 30-year-old man was shot after a passenger in a vehicle he was following got out and started firing shots.
