Authorities were called to the 7200 block of South South Shore Drive about 1:45 a.m. Thursday. Officers were called to building to investigate a “person down,” and first found a woman in her 30s and her son, about 1 year old, on the ground.

7-Year-Old Shot On Christmas Day At Family Gathering

  7-Year-Old Shot On Christmas Day At Family Gathering Chicago police said the girl was inside of a residence at a family gathering when an offender fired shots from the sidewalk into the house. She was transported to Stroger hospital for treatment. Police also said a second victim, a 38-year-old man, was shot in connection with this incident and walked into St. Anthony Hospital for treatment. He suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and will be transferred to Mt. Sinai. His condition was stabilized. Area Central detectives are investigating and no one is in custody at this time. This is a developing story.

A security worker at the apartment building then took officers to the 11th floor. Inside an apartment they found the man with cuts to his face and body. They also located another boy, about 2 years old, unresponsive in a bathtub. Police News Affairs didn’t immediately have information on whether the woman also was the older child’s mother.

The man said his adult daughter “began stabbing him and then jumped from the 11th floor with her 1-year-old-son,” according to police.

Both boys were pronounced dead at Comer Children’s Hospital, officials said.

The woman survived the fall and she and the man both were taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where they were listed in critical condition.
