A 27-year-old woman was shot to death Sunday in Little Village on the Southwest Side.

Corina Avila was a passenger in a vehicle traveling about 12:54 a.m. in the area of the 2600 block of South St. Louis Avenue when someone unleashed gunfire and struck her in the head, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

The female driver drove about a mile away to a home in the 4100 block of West 25th Street where paramedics responded, authorities said. Avila was pronounced on the scene.

The driver told officers she didn’t know where the shots came from, authorities said.

An autopsy conducted Sunday confirmed that Avila, of Galewood, died from a gunshot wound to the head. Her death has been ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner.

No one is in custody as Area Central detectives investigate.
