The 76-year-old woman shot while driving in the Brighton Park, who appears to be the innocent victim of a drive-by shooting, was treated and released from Stroger Hospital.

Chicago police said the elderly was in her car at a stop sign near 40th Street and Artesian Avenue when she was wounded, just before 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Witnesses said someone fired gunshots from a passing vehicle. A bullet entered the trunk of the victim's car, hitting the 76-year old woman in the shoulder.

Instead of stopping for help, police said the woman drove her white Buick two miles, to the 2400-block of West 55th Street.

She stopped next to Gage Park, which was full of families enjoying the mild weather.

No one is in custody. The shooting is under investigation.
