A woman was shot dead by someone who then robbed her and stole her car early Wednesday in a gas station parking lot in suburban Oak Park, according to police.

Two people approached 18-year-old Jailyn Logan-Bledso around 1:50 a.m., then one of them pulled out a gun and shot her in her head at the BP station at 100 Chicago Ave., police said.

The robbers took items from the woman and fled in her Chrysler, police said.

She was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office released her name Thursday morning.

Police asked anyone with information to call (708) 386-3800. Anonymous tips can be sent by calling (708) 434-1636 or online at www.oak-park.us/crimetip.
