Chicago: Woman Shot By Stray Bullet While She Slept



A woman was fatally shot while sleeping in her apartment on Chicago's South Side. Investigators said the gunman fired directly into the home, but they have not yet determined whether the victim was the intended target.

Police spent much time gathering clues from the sidewalk in the 5200-block of South King Drive where the shooter allegedly stood when he opened fire around 5:25 a.m. Tuesday.

Rhonda Hughes, 40, was sleeping on her living room sofa when a bullet came flying through the window of her garden unit. Hughes' upstairs neighbor, who identified himself as T.J., said the gunfire woke him up.

"We heard the shots and we did not know what to expect because it was right by my bedroom window," T.J. said.

Hughes was shot in her lower back. She was transported to Stroger Hospital, where she died an hour after she was shot.
