24-year-old mother Brittany Hill is shot at point-blank range by someone driving by in a car in West Chicago. The footage shows Hill shielding her toddler from gunfire.
The shooting happens in the 1200 block of North Mason Avenue on the far West Side around 8:50 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28. The video is from a city camera in the area of Division and Mason.
The video shows that as Hill gets out of her black sedan, a silver Chevy Impala drives down the street and pulls up to her.
The occupants got out of the car and began shooting. Hill tries to take cover behind a car and uses her body to cover the 1-year-old during the gunfire.
Hill is pronounced dead at West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park at 9:25 a.m. Area North detectives are investigating and believe the shooting was not a random act and that the woman was targeted due to gang conflicts.
Police have now charged Michael Washington, 39, and Eric Adams, 23, in connection with Hill’s death.
