How to force close unresponsive tab in Chrome browser?

How do I kill an unresponsive tab without closing the Chrome browser completely? It doesn’t happen often, but once in a while, I’ll have a website that constantly loads with the spinning icon on the tab, and the tab doesn’t respond when I try to close it. Is there a better way than just closing Chrome, which of course causes all of my tabs to close?

Looks like you already got a good answer, but here's a link to the Google Chrome browser support page in case anything else comes up:

Go to the Chrome menu (three lines in upper right beside the taskbar)> more tools>task manager. You should be able to close the offending process in the pop-up window.
I've tried that but that is as unresponsive as the tabs.
