A 26-year-old woman was killed Monday in a drive-by in LeClaire Courts on the Southwest Side.
About 11 p.m., Stoni Bridges was a passenger in a parked red sedan when someone inside a passing white-colored SUV opened fire in the 5000 block of West 46th Street, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Bridges was struck in the chest and taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
She was in the vehicle with her boyfriend at the time of the shooting, a police source said. It was unclear who the intended target was.
At the crime scene, officers gathered around a red sedan with the driver’s side window shot out, laying evidence markers near shell casings on the pavement. Exhaust continued to leak out from the back of the car over an hour after the shooting occurred.
Area Central detectives are investigating the shooting.
