CHICAGO (CBS) — A woman died Sunday night after being shot multiple times in the face, head, chest and legs on the city’s West Side.

She was shot three times in the face alone, and police said they believe she was purposely targeted because of the extensive number of times she was shot.

Harris, of the 1100 block of South Laflin Street, was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital at 8 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Police say Harris was shot and wounded last summer – as she saw her boyfriend shot and killed in the 1000 block of West Maxwell Street, the Sun-Times Media Wire reports.

Police say the boyfriend had been a gang leader.

No one is in custody as of Monday afternoon, police said.
