CHICAGO (CBS) – A woman is in serious condition after being caught in the crossfire between two vehicles in the North Lawndale neighborhood Thursday afternoon.
CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar reports a 37-year-old woman who was just enjoying the nice day on her porch was shot in the chest. The chair on the porch of the apartment building is where CPD has been focusing much of its investigation.
Police said around 2:00 p.m., a 37-year-old woman was on a porch, in the 1100 block of South Francisco Avenue, when occupants in both vehicles were firing shots at each other.
There were at least 20 shell casings on the street on the 1100 block of south Francisco in the North Lawndale neighborhood. Police said that two cars were shooting at each other and a woman sitting on her porch was shot in the chest, an unintended victim.
The shooting happened right in front of a church. The victim was struck in the chest and transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital in serious condition.
No one is in custody. Area Four detectives are investigating.
