7 People Wounded in Shooting in Chicago’s South Side

Seven people were wounded in a mass shooting in Chicago on Thursday (July 1), including a 1-month-old girl. The incident happened around 8:15 pm, and was caught on surveillance cameras in the area, which showed three gunmen getting out of a black Jeep and shooting at people in the street with what appeared to be assault rifles.

Chicago police and a Chicago Fire Department spokesman revealed that the baby was taken to St. Bernard Hospital in critical condition. Police spokesman Tom Ahern said the baby was strapped into a car seat of an SUV when she was shot. The SUV was parked outside of the hospital, which showed at least three visible bullet holes.

The other six victims, ranging in ages from 15 to 46, suffered minor injuries and were all in good condition, according to police.

This shooting happened less than six hours after a 9-year-old girl was shot in the head and left in critical condition in another South Side shooting.
