A woman was injured by shattered glass when the vehicle she was driving was shot Friday night in the Oakland neighborhood on the South Side.

The 30-year-old was driving north about 7:30 p.m. in the 3700 block of South Lake Shore Drive when she heard shots being fired from a dark colored car headed in the same direction, Chicago police said.

Her vehicle was struck by several bullets, police said.

The woman was taken to Mercy Hospital with injuries caused by shattered glass, police said.

Area Central detectives are investigating.

Correction: A previous version of this story misstated the neighborhood the criminal damage occurred in. It happened in Oakland, not Lake View East.
