A 32-year-old Chicago woman died on the ramp from Lake Shore Drive to Interstate 55 after someone pulled alongside her van and fired 10 to 14 shots Friday morning.
The woman was hit at least once and died at the scene but her passenger, a woman whose age wasn’t available, escaped unharmed.
“A brown full-sized van appraoched (the van) in the left lane,” Illinois State Police Capt. Luis Gutierrez said at a press conference this morning. “That vehicle shot at our victim approximately 10 to 14 rounds. One round struck our driver who is now deceased at Northwestern (Memorial Hospital).”
Illinois State Police learned of the shooting about 4:20 a.m. from Chicago police, who happened upon the crash.
