A 55-year-old woman was fatally wounded Tuesday night while she was getting out of her vehicle in the North Austin neighborhood, Chicago police said.
The woman was identified as Tracy A. Allen Showers of the 1500 block of North Central Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Police said Showers was with a family member shortly before 10 p.m., when they both exited her vehicle in the 5500 block of West LeMoyne Street. At some point, her relative saw Showers had been shot.
Showers suffered a wound to the face, and was taken in critical condition to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood where she was pronounced dead at 12:42 a.m. Wednesday.
No one was in custody for the slaying, and Area 5 detectives were investigating.
