CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago authorities say a 64-year-old woman has died as an unintended target of gun violence.

Sixty-four-year-old Cynthia Trevillion was hit by a stray bullet around 6:30 p.m. Friday as she was walking to a Chicago Transit Authority station on the city’s North Side. She was hit in the head and pronounced dead at a hospital.
