Chicago police confirmed they are questioning a person of interest in the shooting death of 11-year-old Shamiyah Adams, according to the Chicago Tribune.
This news comes just days after Supt. Garry McCarthy announced “very young kids” were involved in Adams’ murder.
Adam’s death reportedly stemmed from an earlier fight in the neighborhood that involved a couple of teenagers from rival gangs.
Shamiyah was with friends eating s’mores and pretending to be around a campfire when she was shot, according to the DNAinfo.
“We set down like a play campfire and that’s when we were just talking. I turned around to have a conversation with her and she just lay down,” Adams’ friend Rashunda Jones, 12, told ABC 7 Chicago.
“I saw the hole in her head. And I ran out, and that’s when I told my mama. And we was all panicking. We didn’t know what to do.”
Adams was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition where she later died, according to NBC Chicago.
Police have yet to make an arrest.
Shamiyah was among 40 people shot in Chicago over the weekend.
