A 19-year-old woman was shot in the mouth and seriously wounded Sunday evening in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
She was walking with a male about 5:30 p.m. in the 5300 block of South Sacramento when a vehicle pulled up to them, they exchanged words and someone in the car fired shots, according to Chicago Police.
The woman was shot in the mouth and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.
She wasn’t the intended target, according to a police source. The shooter was going after the person she was walking with, who has documented gang ties, police said.
