They didn't do it like this in Pulp Fiction: A man got shot in the head in a car by someone else in that vehicle Tuesday afternoon, but instead of calling in Mr. Wolf for a clean-up, the car stopped, a passenger got out, pulled the body from the car and then left it lying in the street.

Police say Chase Walker, 20, is in critical condition at Ben Taub General Hospital, but his Facebook page indicates he died this afternoon.

Police say a green car -- possibly a Pontiac Trans Am -- was seen near the intersection of Beren and Quention about 1 p.m. yesterday and witnesses heard a gunshot.

"[Witnesses] then saw the vehicle stop and a black male suspect get out of the car and walk to the passenger side," HPD said. "The suspect opened the door and pulled Mr. Walker out into the street."

That is cold. The car then fled the scene.

The FB page says Walker graduated from Lamar High School in 2009.
