The Game Dies in Shooting — SunTimes — A 51-year-old woman shot in the head by another woman game at a South Side during a card Calumet Heights neighborhood home on Thursday night has died. Detectives are talking to a woman who has turned herself in to police, though no charges have yet been filed.
The woman was shot in the head about 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the 9300 block of South Ridgeland Avenue, according to police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro.
Patricia Clark, 51, of the 16900 block of Old Elm Drive in south suburban Country Club Hills, was pronounced dead at Jackson Park Medical Center overnight at an unknown time, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. She suffered multiple gunshot wounds, a medical examiner’s office spokesman said.
She was playing cards with friends when when the shooter, a woman in her 30s, became upset possibly because there was either cheating going on or she had been losing the game and then shot the victim, according to a South Chicago District police sergeant.
The sergeant said the alleged shooter and another woman ran out of the house and fled after the incident. Police had been looking for both of them, although only one was believed to be a suspect. Police wanted to talk to the other woman — who may have panicked — only want to talk to because she was a witness.
The sergeant said several other friends and possibly family members of the woman shot who were inside the residence at the time were cooperating with police in the investigation.
A woman has turned herself in to police and detectives have been talking to her, according to police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.
As of Sunday afternoon no charges have been filed, Police News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien said.
Another district police officer said neighbors called for help after hearing the shots fired and police found the woman in the kitchen with one gunshot wound to the head.
She was originally taken from the scene with one gunshot wound to the head in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said.
Calumet Area detectives are investigating.
