One killed, 2 wounded in shooting at West Englewood party

A woman was shot to death and two men were wounded in a shooting at a West Englewood party on the South Side early Sunday.

About 12:45 a.m., four people were denied entry to the party in the 6100 block of South Honore, police said.

The four males then surrounded the party and opened fire, striking three people outside, including 29-year-old Deja Atwood, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Atwood was shot in the chest and leg was taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where she later died, authorities said. Her home address wasn’t known on Sunday.

A 39-year-old man shot in the chest was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition, and a 25-year-old man shot in the arm was taken to Holy Cross, where his condition stabilized, police said.
