A 28-year-old woman was shot dead, and a 26-year-old man was wounded in a shooting Sunday in Garfield Park on the West Side.

They were sitting in a vehicle about 11:30 p.m. in the 200 block of North Pulaski Road when someone on foot fired shots, Chicago police said.

Diana Black, 28, was struck in the back and taken to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. She lived in downstate Champaign. An autopsy ruled her death a homicide.

The man was taken to the same hospital in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the abdomen, police said.

No one is in custody as Area Four detectives investigate.
