Woman, 32, fatally shot inside van on Lake Shore Drive

A 32-year-old woman was shot and killed inside a Dodge mini-van on Lake Shore Drive overnight.

The shooting happened along the exit ramp leading to I-55 from the Southbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive around 4:20 a.m. Friday.

Police say a brown full-size van pulled alongside the mini-van.  Someone inside that brown van fired 10 to 14 bullets at the woman.

The woman was shot multiple times, and her vehicle was riddled with bullets.

The van struck a concrete median after the woman was shot.

A female passenger inside the mini-van is being questioned by police. She was not injured.

The ramp leading to I-55 is expected to be closed during the morning rush while police investigate.

No suspects are in custody.

Officers are also checking area surveillance video to get a better look at the events that occurred on Lake Shore Drive.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Illinois State Police at 847-294-4400.

This is a developing story. More details to come.

    This is insane!!!! People we need to pray and help one another .As a community we need to come together and rally against these senseless killings to our children and loved ones.Lord I come to you in prayer and ask that you put your arms around your children and keep us safe from all these evil spirited people in the world!!!!!!!

      How about we rally to do our job in our community and teach our people how to do better. What will a rally do about the condition of our people? It baffles me why we as black people refuse to accept any blame for issues in our community. We have always been poor and broke. Government has always been against us. When we were slaves we werent SAVAGES!

    Many scoff at the idea that this world is ruled by wicked spirits. but their disbelief is not surprising, since the Bible says: 'Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light" (2 Corinthians 11;14) his most clever deception has been in blinding many to the fact that he and his demons really exist. But do not be deceived! The Devil and his demons are real, and you need to resist them continually. 1 Peter 5:8,9

    When are we going to get tired of MARCHING. MARCHING wont do anything, and stop looking to government and police to solve our issues. Believe it or not, black people are not new to poverty and there was a time when poverty didnt equal us killing each other. Get out of DENIAL BLACK PEOPLE. We have some serious work to do on ourselves starting with the breeders in the community who have no intention of being a good parent. The truth will set us free.

    Well said Patrice, the government is not the answer;” To Protect and Serve” is a community responsibility. There is a reason why that slogan was scraped off of police cars years ago.
