A 24-year-old woman was shot to death while sitting in a parked car in West Pullman on the South Side Wednesday night, about a mile from where a man was found shot to death a half-hour earlier.

The woman was sitting in the car about 10:30 p.m. in the 12000 block of South Indiana Avenue when someone fired shots, Chicago police said.

She suffered gunshot wounds to the head and upper body, and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The woman was identified as Tiara Destiny Banks of Chicago Lawn, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Friday ruled her death a homicide.

There were no witnesses to the shooting, police said. Police did not provide any additional details.
