Police are searching for the suspect in the fatal shooting of a woman on a Chicago expressway this morning.

24-year-old Jasmine Curry, a pregnant mother of 5, was shot in the head while riding in a minivan on the Dan Ryan.

State police say Curry was driving southbound with two others between 55th and 59th Street exit when shots were fired  at around 4 a.m. Curry was shot in the head.

Police believe the fatal shots came from a silver dodge intrepid. A woman in the van  waited with Curry until police arrived. But a man in the van ran away on foot.

The Dan Ryan was closed for roughly 7 hours while police investigated.

Family members gathered by the highway, grieving the loss and searching for answers this afternoon.

They say they do not know where Curry was driving. But she previously lived near the scene of the shooting.

Her brother Pierce Curry was shot and killed just blocks away from today’s shooting in August of last year.
