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.
