A woman was shot to death while sitting in a parked car in Englewood on the South Side Wednesday night, Chicago police said.

Two gunmen got out of their car, approached Derricka Patrick and opened fire around 7 p.m. in the 7400 block of South Vincennes Avenue, Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan told reporters Thursday.

Patrick, 29, was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

There’s video of the shooting but detectives still need help identifying the gunmen, Deenihan said.
