Chicago News

CHICAGO  A woman was injured in a shooting inside a downtown-area hotel Sunday afternoon, prompting a response from Chicago police and SWAT.

Authorities responded to a hotel in the 100 block of W. Adams just before 2 p.m. According to police, a 24-year-old woman was found in the lobby of the Club Quarters Hotel with a gunshot wound to her leg.

SWAT was called to the scene, although authorities did not make clear why police needed their assistance. An all-clear has since been given.

The woman’s condition has been stabilized, according to paramedics.

Sunday’s incident is the latest to draw a heavy police response to Chicago’s Loop. On Saturday, a 31-year-old woman was stabbed to death in the 400 block of South Wacker Drive.

A homeless man is suspected of committing the “heinous crime,” said Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown.

No arrests have been made in either case.
