Two people were critically wounded in a shooting Friday in Roseland on the Far South Side.

The pair was in a parked vehicle about 12:38 a.m. in the 10900 block of South State Street when someone fired shots, Chicago police said.

Roslyn Burnett, 36, was struck in the head, torso and leg and was later pronounced dead, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. She lived in South Holland.

A 26-year-old man was hit in the back and suffered a graze wound to the hand, police said. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Area South detectives are investigating.

Earlier this month, a boy was wounded in a shooting a few blocks away.
