A 28-year-old woman was killed, and two men were wounded when they were shot Monday in Back of the Yards on the South Side.
Vanisha Washington and the two men were riding in a vehicle about 9 p.m. in the 5400 block of South Bishop Street when they heard gunfire and realized they were shot, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. They kept driving and stopped in the 1500 block of West 47th Street where authorities responded.
Washington was shot in the armpit and shoulder, and was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said.
A 30-year-old man was hit in the shoulder, and a 27-year-old man was struck in the arm and shoulder, police said. They were both taken to the same hospital in fair condition.
None of them knew who fired shots or where they came from, police said.
No one is in custody as Area Central detectives investigate.
