A woman is in critical condition after someone shot her in the backyard of a Lincoln Square home Wednesday afternoon, according to Chicago police. CPD has announced no arrests.
In a media statement, police said an unknown offender shot the 24-year-old woman in the chest on the 2400 block of West Eastwood around 2:42 p.m.
A man drove the woman to Swedish Hospital in a white SUV that witnesses reportedly saw leaving the shooting scene, according to a CPD report. The driver did not stay at the hospital and he reportedly refused to talk with the police after he called 911 to report the shooting.
Witnesses said they believe shooters fired at least two guns in the incident. Police found one weapon discarded in a gangway next to the shooting scene with bloody clothing. Investigators were checking area hospitals for gunshot victims in case a suspect was also injured. They found none as of early evening, according to a source.
CPD also searched the area for suspects, described by witnesses as three men who left the shooting scene on foot with a baby Pitbull, according to multiple witnesses.
Police located shell casings in an alley behind the home along with a bullet-riddled car that is registered to the victim, the report said.
Area Three detectives are investigating the shooting.
