Lake Shore Drive by leaves 1 dead
A woman was shot to death inside a van on the southbound ramp from Lake Shore Drive to interstates 94 and 55, according to authorities.
The woman, the driver of a white van, sustained multiple gunshot wounds and died at the scene, police said. The van crashed into a concrete wall after the shooting.
A second woman in the van, a passenger, wasn't injured and is being questioned by police. She's not considered a suspect, police said.
Illinois State Police, now handling the investigation, learned of the shooting about 4:20 a.m. from Chicago police, who happened upon the crash.
Police have closed access to both interstates from southbound Lake Shore Drive. Flares laid out to keep vehicles off the ramp were quickly extinguished by biting winds.
