A woman was killed and four other people were wounded in a shooting Wednesday night in the Homan Square neighborhood on the West Side.

Nakia Bailey, 21, was standing outside with two men and two boys when a silver vehicle drove by and someone inside fired shots at 9:42 p.m. in the 3500 block of West Grenshaw, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Bailey, who lived in West Garfield Park on the West Side, suffered four gunshot wounds to her ribs, shoulder and back, authorities said. She was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

A 19-year-old man was shot in the lower back and was taken to Mount Sinai in good condition, police said. An 18-year-old man was shot twice in the leg and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.

A 15-year-old boy was shot once in each leg, and a 17-year-old boy sustained one gunshot wound to the leg, police said. Both were taken to Stroger Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized.

Area North detectives were investigating.
