A woman was grazed early Monday in the crossfire of a shootout in River North.

The 32-year-old was crossing the street at 2 a.m. in the 600 block of North Wells Street when people inside two SUVs started shooting at each other, Chicago police said.

A stray bullet grazed her foot and a friend drove her to Stroger Hospital for treatment, police said.

She didn’t appear to be the intended target, according to police.

The woman was one of more than 50 people wounded in weekend gun violence in Chicago.

No one was in custody.
