A woman was killed and a man was injured by gunfire Saturday in Humboldt Park on the West Side.

They were in a vehicle at 4:19 a.m. in the 3700 block of West Chicago Avenue when a black Chevrolet approached and someone inside started shooting, according to Chicago police.

Tynaz Shorter, 22, was shot in the right leg and buttocks and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she died, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. A 23-year-old man was hit in the right forearm and taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition.
