CHICAGO – A woman was shot following an argument on a cruise ship at Navy Pier early Saturday morning.
Chicago police say passengers were deboarding a ship at about 12:20 a.m. when an unknown male offender got into a fight with a woman.
The male suspect was escorted off the boat by security but returned moments water with a gun and fired shots toward the ship.
A 31-year-old woman suffered a gunshot wound to the knee and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.
