Twenty-year-old Tiana Brown was fatally shot Wednesday night in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood, but police say the gun may have “accidentally discharged.”
She was in the 7800 block of South Honore about 10 p.m. A man was showing her a weapon that “accidentally discharged,” according to Chicago Police. Brown was struck in the head, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Brown, of the 10200 block of Camden Lane in Bridgeview, was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:50 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.
Police said the shooting appeared to be an accident, though an autopsy Thursday ruled Brown’s death a homicide.
No one was in custody as of Thursday afternoon, police said.
