Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) – Police say a woman was fatally shot at a vigil on the same Chicago block where a man was killed a day earlier.

Police say that the 18-year-old woman was among three people shot on Sunday night in the city’s Brainerd neighborhood. Two people wounded in the shooting, identified as a young man and a teenage boy, were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Authorities say the three were among those at vigil for a 23-year-old man who had been shot outside his home on the block on Saturday. According to authorities, two people approached Nahmar T. Holmes and shot him. Police say that shooting likely was gang-related.
