SHARE Bullet grazes woman’s ear in Gage Park shooting

A woman was grazed in a shooting early Tuesday in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

The 28-year-old woman was on the sidewalk with a male in the 2700 block of West 55th about 12:35 a.m. when two other males approached and fired at her, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

She suffered a graze wound to the right ear and was taken by a family member to Holy Cross Hospital, where her she was listed in good condition, Alfaro said.

The shooting may have been gang-related, police said.
