Woman shot after getting caught in crossfire between gunmen in Logan Square

CHICAGO — A woman is recovering after she got caught in the crossfire as two gunmen shot at each other in Logan Square on Saturday afternoon. Chicago police said no one is in custody.

The victim, 30, was riding in a car with her husband when a gunman walked into the street and shot in their direction in the 1600 block of North Washtenaw around 1:12 p.m. A round went through the couple’s windshield and struck the woman in the shoulder.

Witnesses reported that someone in a car returned fire toward the gunman, but it was not clear which car was involved. However, officers reported finding two sets of different shell casings in the area, indicating that more than one gun was fired.

The woman’s husband called 911 and drove to a safe location. CPD said she was in good condition at Stroger Hospital, police said.

An officer who reviewed surveillance footage told other cops that the video showed a gunman, who appeared to be wearing black clothing, shooting at a black sedan. Witnesses, however, said the man who shot at the vehicle wore a beige hoodie. Either way, he fled the area on foot.
