A 43-year-old woman was shot in an Uptown apartment Thursday evening by a man that she knows, police said. The exact relationship between the two was not released.

The woman called 911 shortly after 9 p.m. to report that she had been shot on the 9th floor of a high-rise in the 4900 block of North Sheridan, according to an officer at the scene.

Police said the woman suffered a single gunshot wound to the chest. Crack pipes covered with blood were found in the apartment along with unused ammunition.

The suspect, possibly named “Ernest,” is described as a black male who was wearing a black hat, blue jeans, and a black coat when he fled the scene, the woman said.

The victim was transported to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where she was reported to be in serious condition.
