A woman was seriously wounded in a shooting early Saturday in north suburban Zion.

They found the 18-year-old suffering from a gunshot wound to her chest at the rear of a home in the block, police said. She was taken to Condell Medical Center in Libertyville in serious condition. She remained hospitalized Monday.
