A 27-year-old woman was pronounced dead today, eight days after being shot along with several others after a family prom party in the Lawndale neighborhood, officials said.
Quintana Love of the 1300 block of South Tripp Avenue was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital at 12:10 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Love had been in “grave” condition at the hospital since the shooting, which happened on May 17 at 11:25 p.m. on the 1200 block of South Kolin Avenue, officials said.
Police said at the time that Love had been shot in the neck, apparently with either an AK-47-style gun or one of two Tec-9 machine pistols police found discarded half a block away.
In addition to Love, two others sustained life-threatening wounds. A 38-year-old woman lost a piece of her arm -- one woman who saw her afterward said she could “see the meat hanging off.”
Another man, 38, was shot in the back. He and the woman were both initially in critical condition.
