24-Year-Old Woman, Hardworking Mother, Shot Dead in Alley in Chicago

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A 24-year-old woman shot to death Friday morning in the Roseland neighborhood is being remembered as a hardworking parent.

Officers found her shot several times in her chest about 2:35 a.m. in an alley in the 10700 block of South Eberhart on the Far South Side, Chicago police said.

She was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The woman, identified as Ambriana Collins, left behind a 4-year-old boy, her relative Shiela House said.

“Everybody’s just so lost about it. She was just a hardworking parent,” House said. “We’re just so stunned. Everybody called her Ambrii. She was loved by so many.”

Collins worked at a McDonald’s at 103rd and Kedzie, and also at a Popeyes, House said. Her child’s father died from cancer in October, House said.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired and found the woman in the alley, police said. Investigators were told a white truck was seen speeding from the scene.

An autopsy Saturday found Collins died from multiple gunshot wounds and her death was ruled a homicide, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

No one was in custody Friday night as Area South detectives investigated the shooting, police said.
