1-Year-Old Girl Shot In Head

CHICAGOTRIBUNE.COM - A 1-year-old girl is fighting for her life after being shot in the head on a street in the South Chicago neighborhood, police said.

The incident happened about 8:11 a.m. Tuesday at 84th Street and Muskegon Avenue, where the child and her 15-year-old aunt were walking a dog, police said. The aunt heard shots and fell on the child. Earlier police reports had said the child was with her mother.

A man was bicycling in the area near the woman and her child when two male teens began shooting at the bicyclist, who managed to get away, police said. No one is in custody in the shootings, police said.

The child was hit by one of the bullets and was taken by family first to Advocate Trinity Hospital before being transferred to Children's Memorial Hospital where she underwent surgery. The aunt was not injured, police said.

Several neighbors said they see the aunt walking with the child and the dog nearly every morning. The child was listed in critical condition, police said.

One neighborhood resident, Sharita Johnson, said her 5-year-old son was walking to kindergarten with his father this morning when the gunmen started firing nearby, sending them scrambling back to her house.

A neighbor later gave Johnson's son, Darryl, a ride to school, where he spoke with counselors, she said.

"It's just too sad," Johnson said as she walked her son home from school, his hand clutching a chocolate candy bar as he stood at her side. "Now he's saying he doesn't even want to go back to school. He's scared, he's afraid. He hears shots everyday, but he was never in the crossfire until today, going to school."
