Girls, 11 and 12, critically wounded in Saturday shootings less than 30 minutes apart

Two preteen girls were shot in the head Saturday night in separate incidents on the city’s South Side, within a period of 30 minutes.

Authorities first responded to a report that an 11-year-old girl had been shot in the 6500 block of South King Drive in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood. The injury left her in "very critical'' condition, officials said.

The girl was sitting in a parked vehicle about 7:40 p.m. when someone fired shots, hitting her in the back of the head, police and fire officials said.

The child was taken to Comer Children's Hospital, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Curtis Hudson said.

Less than 30 minutes earlier, a 12-year-old girl was shot in the head while playing with friends in the city’s West Englewood neighborhood.

She was the unintended target in a shooting near the 1900 block of West 57th Street about 7:15 p.m., police said.

The girl was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital. When police first reported the shooting, they mistakenly said the girl was a woman, between 35 and 40 years old, who was standing on the corner when she heard shots and felt pain.

Authorities are investigating the shootings.

The good thing is that when enough of them are gone the state might turn red

Most of the state is red, just not the large progressive plantations.

Rahm needs to be tarred and feathered.. He continues NOT to find solutions..so that means he's part of the problem.

That is very true, also, he says he doesn't need help. That must mean he likes things the way they are. He is disgusting.

That is so sad about those little kids.

Trump Rally Springfield IL November one year BEFORE the election in 2015.  I was there. Drove 3 hours, LOL.  The entire main hall (pictured) holds 41,000.  It was packed. 

Downstate IL loves President Trump!

The country loves President Trump

Not NY City, Chicago, Philadelphia, LA.

Leave those atypical cities out of the mix, the people overwhelmingly love him.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious.

The thread was posted to further an agenda.

No mention of the horrific tragedy concerning 2 precious African American girls shot down in the windy city with exception of a brief reference about the violent incident.
