Police say she and her mother were not the intended targets, according to the Chicago Tribune. The two were reportedly walking together in the Little Village neighborhood when they heard gunfire and rushed into a nearby bank for cover. It was there that the extent of the child’s injuries became clear. She was rushed to nearby Stroger Hospital, but she succumbed to her injuries. The girl’s mother was unharmed.

Angel Ocampo was in a funeral home nearby when the shooting broke out. He told ABC 7, “I just froze and just sat down. I didn’t know what happened. I just sat there. It really isn’t safe. There’s a lot of crime here supposedly and there’s a lot of shootings. This is like gang territory.”
