Woman killed when gun ‘accidentally discharged’ in Auburn Gresham

A 20-year-old woman was killed when a gun “accidentally discharged” Wednesday night in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood.

Tiana Brown was in the 7800 block of South Honore about 10 p.m. when someone was showing her a weapon that “accidentally discharged” and struck her in the head, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Brown, of the 10200 block of Camden Lane in Bridgeview, was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:50 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.

Police said the shooting was an accident, but an autopsy Thursday ruled her death a homicide.

No one was in custody as of Thursday afternoon, police said.
