Logan Square shooting: 10-year-old girl shot to death in apartment


A missing girl was killed by a stray bullet Saturday inside a Logan Square home.

The girl was inside an apartment around 9:40 pm in the 3500 block of West Dickens Avenue when the bullet went through a window and hit her in the head, Chicago police said.

She was taken to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released details of her death.

Neighbors said they heard gunshots but believed they were fireworks. Police said the shooting may have come from a group of men who started shooting at another group in the block.

No one was immediately detained while Area Five detectives investigate.

Earlier on Saturday afternoon, a 1-year-old boy was shot dead in Englewood. A 17-year-old boy was also killed in another shooting that morning in Humboldt Park.
