CHICAGO (WLS) -- A 64-year-old woman was shot and killed and a 13-year-old was shot and critically wounded in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood. There have been 10 shooting victims across the city since 3 p.m. Friday, according to police.
The boy was walking in the 7400-block of North Ridge Boulevard just before 6 p.m. when he got involved in an altercation and was shot. The boy ran, then collapsed. He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition. As of 9:15 p.m. he was in surgery.
No one is in custody. Area North Detectives are investigating.
About half an hour later, at about 6:30 p.m., a 64-year-old woman was shot about a mile away in the 6900-block of North Glenwood Avenue in Rogers Park. Police said she was walking southbound near the Morse CTA Red Line stop when a dark SUV drove up and its occupants opened fire, striking her.
The woman was shot in the head and taken to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition. She was pronounced dead shortly before 8:30 p.m.
"Tonight's shooting was a horrible tragedy. What compounds this tragedy is that an innocent victim was shot and killed," said 49th Ward Alderman Joe Moore.
Police said the woman was not the intended target. Area North Detectives are investigating. No one is in custody.
The woman has been identified to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Cynthia Trevillion of Chicago.
Chief of Patrol Fred Waller and Ald. Moore said it's possible the same dark SUV was involved in both shootings, but they do believe the shootings were actually connected. Police are trying to locate the intended targets of the Glenwood Avenue shooting to see if they have information that could lead them to the shooters.
