This morning, police say a woman got into an argument with her ex-boyfriend in her Bronzeville neighborhood, and he ended up shooting her in the face. According to preliminary reports, the shooting took place at 12:12 a.m. in the 4200 block of South Prairie Avenue.
Police spokesman Officer Robert Perez said the gunman, a man in his late 40s, showed up at the woman’s apartment and got into an argument with her before pulling the trigger.
Officials were only able to say that the two had “dated,” but they were unable to elaborate further.
It was reported to police that during the argument, the man pulled out a handgun and shot the 42-year-old victim in the left cheek and neck. A man ran out of the apartment.
The woman’s condition was considered stable upon transport to Stroger Hospital. As of 6:30 a.m., Perez reported, the man was still at large despite the police’s best efforts to locate him.
