A 21-year-old woman died after she was shot during a domestic dispute in the Northwest Side Cragin neighborhood Saturday morning, according to police.

The shooting occurred about 9:10 a.m. in the 4800 block of West Wolfram Street, according to police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak.

The victim was shot in the head, Kubiak said. She was taken in “extremely critical” condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, according to Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford.
