Another shooting left one woman dead and another injured, on the west side near Garfield Park.

The two women were sitting on a porch in the 3800 block of West Monroe Thursday afternoon.

A group of men in masks drove past in a blue sedan and opened fire.

Authorities say the shooting was retaliation for a botched drug deal that happened earlier this week.

They do not believe the women were the intended targets.

The 22-year-old woman died of a gunshot wound to the head, and the 21-year-old woman is hospitalized after being shot in the arm.

No arrests have been made.
