On Saturday night, two young girls were each inadvertent victims of separate drive-by shootings on Chicago’s South Side.
The girls, ages 11 and 12, were taken to different area hospitals, with just under one hour separating the shootings.
Now in “very critical” condition, the 11-year-old girl was rushed to Corner Children’s Hospital last night after being struck by a bullet in Chicago’s Parkway Gardens neighborhood.
Sitting in a parked car just before 8 p.m., the girl was shot in the head, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Curtis Hudson.
In the same hour, in the West Englewood area, a 12-year-old girl was also hit in the head by a bullet while playing with friends outside her home. The innocent bystander was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.
On Saturday alone, two other people were killed in shootings, while an additional four were injured in unrelated Chicago violence.
