A 7-year-old little girl, who was out trick-or-treating, was critically injured on Thursday night in a shooting on Chicago’s West Side.
According to Fire Departement spokesman Larry Langford, the girl was shot in the lower neck area and transported by paramedics to Stroger Hospital.
A 30-year-old man was also shot in the left hand. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Via Associated Press:
Authorities say the man and girl were walking along a street in the Little Village neighborhood when a man in a group of males drew a gun and fired at the victims.
In a tweet, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the girl, who was out with her family for Halloween, is believed to be an unintended victim.
