CHICAGO (AP) - A woman who had just attended a fundraiser for an anti-violence organization was shot to death in Chicago.

Thirty-two-year-old Leonore Draper was shot in the arm and chest inside a car in the West Pullman neighborhood on Friday night.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office says she died after being taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Friends and relatives said she had just attended a fundraiser for a youth anti-violence organization called Project Orange Tree.

Draper was one of at least four people killed in Chicago since the start of the weekend. More than two dozen other people were wounded in shootings across the city.

The dead also included an 86-year-old man shot by an off-duty police officer during an argument between the two neighbors.
