A woman was killed and two people were wounded in a Chicago Lawn neighborhood shooting Sunday evening on the Southwest Side.

About 8:20 p.m., they were sitting in side a parked vehicle in the 6000 block of South Richmond when a male got out of a silver vehicle nearby and fired shots, according to Chicago Police.

The woman, identified as 42-year-old Catherine Barnett, was struck in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 8:35 p.m., police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Barnett lived on the same block as the shooting.

A 37-year-old man was shot in the chest and taken in serious condition to Stroger Hospital, police said.

A bullet grazed a third person in the nose, but they refused treatment and were uncooperative with officers, police said. Their age and gender were unknown.
