Woman killed by stray bullet in Chicago


A young woman was killed in Chicago Friday night inside a cell phone store.

It happened when a stray bullet crashed through the store’s window from outside and struck her in the back of the head.

She was standing at the counter with two children. Witnesses say two men on the corner were firing shots at each other.

One of the bullets also hit an ambulance. 

A woman who was in the store just before it happened says she felt compelled to leave.

“Something kept telling me to leave, to leave and thank God they told me to leave because I didn’t want my kids to not have their mom,” the woman said.

Both suspects fled the scene on foot and police have not made an arrest. 

The victim was in her late 20’s. Her relationship to the children who were with  her is not known.
