A Bridgeport woman died Monday, more than a month after she was shot in the Little Village neighborhood.

Debra Escobedo, 49, was shot about 3 a.m. June 1 when a gunman approached a group standing in the 2700 block of West 24th Street and opened fire, authorities said.

Escobedo, who was part of the group, was shot in the abdomen area, authorities said.

Escobedo’s brother, Nelson Massallo, told DNAInfo Chicago his sister was leaving a bar when the gunman as young as 12 began shooting.

Escobedo, of the 3100 block of South Green Street, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where she died at 12:37 p.m. Monday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Nobody has been charged for the murder.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
