Woman gets 3 years for shooting acquaintance in Uptown

Naomi Turner | CPD

An Auburn Gresham woman has been sentenced to three years in prison for shooting an acquaintance on an Uptown street in April 2019. But, after getting credit for time spent in jail before sentencing and Illinois’ standard 50% “good behavior” sentence reduction, she did not spend any time in prison, according to state records.

Naomi Turner, 41, got out of a vehicle and shot a 30-year-old woman in the 5000 block of North Winthrop at 8:42 p.m. on April 28, 2019, prosecutors alleged. The victim was shot in the leg, and Turner fled in a black SUV. Turner and the victim knew each other, police said at the time.

The victim flagged down police and reportedly identified Turner as the shooter. Cops caught up with Turner a couple of days later.

Records show Turner has pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon in exchange for the three-year sentence.

According to Illinois Department of Corrections records, Turner reported to the Logan Correctional Center earlier this month and was paroled on the same day. She will be discharged from parole next November.
