Woman hurt in year’s first reported shooting

A woman was injured in the year’s first reported shooting early New Year’s Day in the Ashburn neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

The woman, 21, was with a male in a parked minivan about 2:30 a.m. in the 7900 block of South St. Louis when a dark-colored car pulled up and one of its occupants opened fire, police said. The car then drove off northbound on St. Louis.

The woman, who was sitting in the passenger seat, was shot in the leg and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where her condition had stabilized, police said.
