A 46-year-old woman was shot by an individual in a passing car while walking in the 700 block of Sherman Ave., Evanston police said.

Evanston police Cmndr. Ryan Glew said police received multiple reports of shots fired and were advised that a woman had been shot. The woman told police she saw a car pull up and start shooting. When she realized she had been shot, she ran to her house, Glew said. The Evanston Fire Department transported her to the hospital to receive medical attention.

Glew said police “made contact” with a minor, who is a resident and a suspect in the shooting, though no one has been charged.
