Chicago police were flagged down by a man on the street as they responded to the sound of gunfire Friday night and found a woman lying on the ground, bleeding from gunshot wounds to her upper body.
She and three others were wounded between about 5:55 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. on the South and West Sides, according to Chicago police, among a total of six people shot Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.
The woman, whose name and age were not available, was shot in the 1100 block of North Pulaski Road, just a bit south of Division Street in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood about 7:05 p.m., police said. Officers in the area heard the gunfire and headed toward it — that’s when they were flagged down.
The woman, who suffered a wound to her back and a second below her armpit, was talking when taken away in an ambulance but was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital. She may have been stepped on as people fled the scene, police said.
Four others survived shootings Friday night and Saturday morning.
Guess it could have been worse if Obama didn’t show up, huh?
