CHICAGO -- A woman was fatally shot after a traffic altercation on the city's South Side.

Dominique Hobson, 23, was killed after an altercation between the driver of two cars near 74th Street and Yates Avenue just before midnight on Tuesday. She was shot twice.

Witnesses told police it appeared the female driver, Hobson, was trying to get away when she was shot.

She was transported to University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition, but was later pronounced dead.

The shooter fled the scene.

Abdunweheb Ikharo, Hobson's husband, came to the United States just two years ago for a better life. Not long after arriving, he met the love of his life. He said he got the call no one ever wants to get around midnight.

"She was alone in the car but her friend was behind her and they were coming together from the North Side," he said.

That friend said Hobson and the driver of another car started arguing over something that happened on the road. A couple of blocks later, he pulled out a gun.

"The guy shot her twice on the forehead and in the throat," he said.

Services will be held on Monday for Hobson.
