OAK PARK, Ill. — A woman was shot and killed in an Oak Park parking lot early Wednesday morning.
At around 1:50 a.m., police responded to a BP parking lot at 100 Chicago Ave. on the report of shots fired. When they arrived, they found a woman with a gunshot wound to the head. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
On Thursday the medical examiner identified the victim as 18-year-old Jailyn Logan-Bledsoe.
A witness told authorities they saw two males approach the woman from behind, fire one shot and then stole items from her. Police believe the suspects fled in the victim’s dark Chrysler vehicle.
“They could have just took the car. But you take her life,” said resident Denise Bryant. “It is so cruel.”
