A man is accused of fatally shooting a woman while firing shots at another man last week on the West Side.

Angel Ayala, 22, is charged with one count of first-degree murder and four counts of attempted murder in connection with the June 19 incident, Chicago police said.

Ayala allegedly fired on a 2016 Mazda about 6:10 p.m. in the 3300 block of West North Avenue, striking a 23-year-old man in the leg, police said.

A bullet passed through the vehicle and struck Nicole Osborne, 37, who was walking in the area at the time, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. She was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital.

Ayala, of Blue Island, was arrested Thursday in the south suburb.

He is expected to appear in court Saturday.
