The shooting happened at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday near the intersection of Kildare Avenue and Hirsch Street.

She was taken in stable condition to Illinois Masonic Hospital.

The neighbor said she went over to the truck and heard the driver tell police that someone in a car shot at him and then sped off.
