Woman found fatally shot on West Loop street

The 1500 block of West Hubbard | Google

Chicago — A 31-year-old woman was found fatally shot on a West Loop street on Wednesday evening, Chicago police said. There is very little information about what happened to the woman, identified by the Cook County medical examiner’s office as Brittany Wooten of Oak Park.

A passerby discovered the woman lying next to a black Pontiac in the 1500 block of West Hubbard around 8:32 p.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene, apparently from a gunshot wound to her head, according to a CPD media statement.

Police did not receive any calls of shots fired in the area, and officers at the scene said there were no witnesses.

Area Three detectives are investigating.
