DOLTON, Ill. — A woman was shot in the head after picking up her two children from daycare.

Sources said a woman was driving westbound on Sibley Boulevard around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday when someone in another vehicle fired shots into her car. She had two children in the car with her.

The woman was shot in the head. The children were not injured.

The woman's car kept going until it left the road and crashed past Thornridge High School.

Sources said the woman was not the intended target and may have been caught in gang-related crossfire.

The woman was transported in critical condition to the University of Chicago Medical Center.

There was no description of the suspect, and the investigation is ongoing.

This was the second shooting in a span of three days in Dolton.
