3 women shot, 1 fatally in Avalon Park

A 33-year-old woman was shot dead and two others were wounded Saturday in Avalon Park on the South Side.

The women were standing in the street with a group of people about 9:40 p.m. in the 8000 block of South Woodlawn Avenue when the shots were fired, Chicago police said.

All three were taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said, where a 33-year-old who was shot in the chest was pronounced dead.

Although she remains unidentified, an autopsy conducted Sunday confirmed she died of her gunshot wounds, Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Her death was ruled a homicide.

The other two, both 28, were in fair condition, police said. One was shot in the arm, and the other was struck in the buttocks.

No one is in custody as Area Two detectives investigate.
