A 36-year-old woman was shot inside a home Sunday in Englewood.

About 1:08 a.m., someone entered the home in the 6100 block of South Carpenter Street and unleashed gunfire, Chicago police said. She was shot multiple times in the head and body, and she was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the woman as Kobayashi Wylie-Hill. She lived in Back of the Yards. An autopsy ruled her death a homicide.

Police said it was not immediately clear whether there was any relationship between the shooter and Wylie-Hill, but the incident is not being investigated as a break-in or home invasion.

No arrests have been made as Area One detectives investigate.
