A 21-year-old Chicago woman was grazed by a bullet early Saturday morning while she was attending a party at a business on Howard Street, according to police.
Someone fired four shots from the Chicago side of the 700 block of Howard Street around 1:35 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, according to Evanston Police Cmdr. Jason Parrott. One of the bullets struck the woman’s forearm while she was inside the party or standing in a doorway, he said.
Parrott said that the woman was taken to St. Francis Hospital, where she was treated and released. The bullet did not lodge itself in her arm, he said, and there were no other injuries during the incident.
Chicago police are handling the investigation since the shooter fired from the Chicago side of the street, according to Parrott. A spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department said that no one was in custody as of late Monday afternoon.
At the same party, someone also stole a Perry Ellis black pea coat that was left unattended at the business between 1:39 and 1:41 a.m., according to police.
