2 women critically injured in West Rogers Park shooting

Two women were fighting for their lives Thursday night after someone shot them as they sat in a car in West Rogers Park, according to Chicago police.

Officers responded to shots fired calls in the 6400 block of North Bell around 10 p.m. and found the women inside a car near an alley. One victim, a 29-year-old woman, suffered gunshot wounds to her arms and neck. The other woman, whose age was unknown, had a gunshot wound to the forehead.

The victims were taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston. Both were said to be in very critical condition.

About a half-dozen shell casings were found lying behind the car. Police released no information about the gunman or the shooter’s motive.
