Woman killed in Brighton Park shooting


A woman was killed in a shooting in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.

Fhee Hernandez-Castillo was sitting in a vehicle with her boyfriend about 8:50 p.m. when a gunman approached them while yelling gang slogans in the 4700 block of South Rockwell Street, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Hernandez-Castillo, 20, was sitting in the passenger seat when she was struck in the neck and hand, police said.

After the shooting, her boyfriend drove off and pulled over at a Shell gas station, 4658 S California Ave., where Chicago Fire Department paramedics arrived.

Hernandez-Castilo was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital and later pronounced dead, police said.

An autopsy conducted Sunday ruled her death a homicide.

No one is in custody as Area One detectives investigate.
