Woman claims she was shot while riding in a car in Roscoe Village: police report

Chicago police are investigating a woman’s claim that she was shot while riding in a car in Roscoe Village overnight.

The 18-year-old showed up at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with six gunshot wounds to her thigh and hand around 2 a.m., according to a CPD media statement. She told police she was shot while riding in a white Audi in the 2000 block of West Belmont moments earlier.

However, no calls of shots fired came from that area, and officers who went to the scene did not find any shell casings or other evidence of gunfire. A CPD surveillance camera operator radioed that they reviewed video footage of the area where the woman said the shooting occurred, and not a single white Audi passed through the area.

Several 911 callers reported shots fired in the 5100 block of North Kildare on the Northwest Side around 1:40 a.m. Police were exploring the possibility that she may have been injured there.

Update February 11: CPD now lists the address of this shooting as the 5200 block of North Kedzie.
