CHICAGO (STMW) — A woman has died after being shot in the Logan Square neighborhood early Sunday.
The 21-year-old woman was a rear seat passenger in a vehicle traveling eastbound in the area of 3500 West Fullerton Avenue about 12:25 a.m., police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said. A group of males was standing on a nearby sidewalk when one of them shouted gang slogans and fired shots, Alfaro said.
The woman has been identified as Cindy Bahena of the 200 block of North Laramie Avenue, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. She was taken to Norwegian-American Hospital, where she was pronounced at 12:47 a.m., according to police and the medical examiner’s office.
The shooting appears to be gang-related, and the male driver of the vehicle is a known gang member, police said.
No one is in custody as Area North detectives are investigating.
