    The city’s first fatal shooting occurred just before 5 p.m. Friday afternoon in the 2500 block of East 79th Street, according to police. Authorities say a 29-year-old woman was getting an order of protection against a man, and the man became enraged, drew a weapon, and shot her in the back.

    The woman was taken to University of Chicago Hospital, where she later died from her injuries.

    Another person, a 15-year-old boy, was also shot in the incident. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in stable condition after being shot in the face.
