Uptown Shooting Kills Woman, 57, And Wounds Man, Police Say

A Chicago — A shooting in Uptown left a 57-year-old woman dead and 58-year-old man wounded on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

At 3:25 p.m., the two were walking on the sidewalk in the 4500 block of North Sheridan Road when a car drove by and someone inside fired shots, said Officer Michelle Tannehill, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.

The woman was hit in her torso and was pronounced dead, Tannehill said.

The man was hit in his leg and was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital in good condition, Tannehill said.

The man was a documented gang member, police said.

No one was in custody.

Ald. James Cappleman (46th) said the "senseless act" was captured on a police camera installed in the area last year and will be reviewed.

"As I've said before, I'm asking all residents to call 911 if they see any suspicious activity that they believe needs immediate attention by the police. Even if you're not sure about making a call, it's fine to call 911 and let the operator assess what the next steps should be," he said.

"There are things we all can do to address the culture of violence we see today in Chicago and across this nation. First and foremost, we must pressure our federal and state legislators to pass gun law reform; the ease of access to guns is appalling and our elected leaders must do everything possible to place more restrictions on gun access," Cappleman said.
