CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago police say a woman pushing a baby in a stroller was fatally shot on the city's South Side.

Authorities say the 32-year-old victim was killed when two males walked up and fired shots at a third man about 3:30 p.m. Friday. Police say the woman was not the intended target.

Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office say she suffered gunshot wounds to her head and an arm.

Family spokesman Pastor Edward Jones says the victim was a mother of four and was walking to register her children for school. He says the family recently moved to the neighborhood.

Police say one of the males who fired shots was being questioned Friday evening.

Police say the baby wasn't hurt, and a relative has taken custody of the child.
