DOLTON, Ill. — A person is in police custody in the death of a mother who was shot while driving with her children in Dolton, according to a source.
A source told WGN a 16-year-old was taken into custody Wednesday in the death of Marshia Bowman, 40.
Bowman was driving on Sibley Boulevard on August 21 when someone opened fire. Bowman’s children were with her in the car at the time of the shooting. They were not injured.
A stray bullet struck her in the head. She died two days later at the hospital.
Police don’t believe she was the intended target, rather, possibly a vehicle in front of hers.
The source said police identified the person suspected in the shooting early in the investigation. The person was taken into custody in Morgan Park and is expected to appear in court on Thursday.
