Two women were shot, one fatally, Saturday in South Shore.

They were standing in the rear parking area of an apartment building about 1:52 a.m. in the 3000 block of East 78th Street when gunfire erupted, Chicago police said.

A 19-year-old woman was struck in the head and pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office identified the woman as Annette McKay, though they listed the shooting as having happened in the 6800 block of South Crandon Avenue. An autopsy ruled her death a homicide, saying she died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The other woman, 39, was shot in the shoulder and was taken to the same hospital in fair condition, police said.

No one is in custody as Area Two detectives investigate.
