As temperatures rise in Chicago, so are shootings, with the latest being a 21-year-old woman killed while confronting robbers at a residence in Auburn Gresham.

According to FOX 32, the shooting happened in the 7500 block of South Wolcott Street. The woman approached the residence's garage while it was being robbed and attempted to confront the offenders, and one pulled out a weapon and fired several shots at the victim. She was hit in the chest, back, and arm and pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim, identified as Jessica Hudson, was among many family members helping out at the residence they refer to as "Granny's Home," according to ABC 7. Her cousin, Wesley Metcalf, was at the home and said Hudson took an air conditioning unit to the garage minutes before they heard loud noises coming from the back of the residence. The woman was the first to go out the door, and she was shot eleven times as two offenders ran out the garage, her cousin told ABC 7.

Hudson's mother moved the family away from the city and into the suburbs to escape the violence and keep her kids safe. According to her family, she was only in the area to help out at 'Granny's House.'

There are no suspects in custody, and police haven't found a motive for the shooting.

Hudson was among the many who fell victim to gun violence in Chicago in the past few days. Other victims included two children, ages 6 and 11, injured on the south side.
