A woman was hit by a stray bullet late Saturday in the Irving Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

About 11:50 p.m., the 25-year-old was outside in the 3400 block of West Irving Park when someone in a black SUV fired shots at another vehicle and a bullet ricocheted, striking the woman’s right leg, according to Chicago Police.

She declined medical treatment, police said.
