CHICAGO (STMW) – Police are questioning a “person of interest” in connection with an East Garfield Park shooting that critically wounded a woman early Tuesday.

The 27-year-old victim was shot in the head at 1:53 a.m. in the 300 block of South Mozart Street, police said. She was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in critical condition.

Police are questioning a 31-year-old man in relation to the shooting, News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.

The woman did not appear to be the intended target. The shooter was in a fight with his cousin and fired shots, but missed his intended target and hit the woman instead, Mirabelli said.

Area North detectives are investigating.
