Police say a 23-year-old woman is in extremely critical condition after she was an unintended target in a drive-by shooting in Zion Sunday evening.
The Zion Police Department responded around 9 p.m. Sunday to the 2800 block of Enoch Avenue in Zion for a report of shots fired.
Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli said police officers arrived and found evidence of several shots that had been fired near the roadway.
Officers also found a 23-year-old Zion woman who had been shot by “what appears to be a stray round,” Covelli said.
The woman does not appear to have been an intended target. The woman was inside of her home when she was struck by the round.
Paramedics with the Zion Fire Rescue Department transported the victim to an area hospital with extremely critical injuries, Covelli said.
Due to the nature of the incident, the Zion Police Department requested the assistance of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force.
Members of the task force continue investigating along with Zion Police Department detectives.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Zion Police Department at 847-872-8000.
