CHICAGO — A 64-year-old woman was shot to death in Rogers Park — though she wasn't the intended target of the shooting, police said.

At 6:30 p.m. Friday, the woman was on the sidewalk in the 6900 block of North Glenwood Avenue when someone in a car drove up and people in the car fired shots, police said.

The woman was hit in her head and was taken to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition, police said.

Cynthia Trevillion, of the 6800 block of North Greenview, was pronounced dead at 7:18 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Trevillion was a teacher at Chicago Waldorf School, where she taught middle school math, according to the school's website.

She was not the intended victim of the shooting, police said.

No one was in custody.
