A woman was wounded in the lip and neck Thursday night during a drive-by shooting in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

At 9:45 p.m., the 43-year-old was riding in the passenger seat of a vehicle in the 8400 block of South Green when she was shot by someone in a passing vehicle, according to Chicago police.

She was driven several blocks north to a parking lot near the 6th District Gresham police station at 79th and Halsted streets, according to a police source at the scene. She walked toward the station and was met by police, who arranged an ambulance to take her to the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Her condition had stabilized, police said.
