A 24-year-old woman was shot while driving on Chicago’s South Side Monday night, police said.
Just after 11 p.m., the woman was driving alone in the Englewood neighborhood when she was viciously gunned down near the intersection of 71st and Wentworth, according to police.
She told authorities she had been heading westbound when someone pulled up, jumped out of another car and started shooting, striking her multiple times and causing her vehicle to veer off the road.
Chicago police said they don't know why the woman was targeted or if the shooting was totally random.
The woman was transported to Oak Lawn’s Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the head.
Chicago police have been increasingly responding to shootings aimed at drivers. Illinois State Police report at least 20 expressway shootings so far this year. The most recent, Thursday night, when a truck driver was critically wounded on the Dan Ryan.
Police have no suspects in custody in connection with the woman’s shooting. It is unknown if it was gang-related.
