A 32-year-old woman is in serious condition after someone shot her on a Rogers Park sidewalk overnight, police said. Shootings in the neighborhood have doubled compared to last year.
The woman told police she was walking on the 7700 block of North Paulina when she heard the shots fired around 3:45 a.m. She arrived at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston by car a short time later. Officers said she suffered a gunshot wound to her stomach and a graze wound to her leg.
Police marked about ten shell casings and a parked car appeared to be struck by bullets at the scene, according to a witness.
Area Three detectives are investigating.
