The woman was stopped at a red light in the 700-block of North Hamlin Avenue when she was struck in the head twice.

The 26-year-old was taken to Stroger Hospital where police said she died. The Cook County Medical Examiner later identified the victim as Qiana Harding of Chicago.

No one was in custody early Monday morning as Area Four detectives investigated the fatal shooting.

There was no description of the offender or the vehicle.

Sunday's homicide added to a long list of weekend violence in Chicago.

Twenty-three people were shot, six fatally across the city since Friday evening.

Last weekend, five people were killed.
