A West Side Chicago community is mourning the tragic loss of 11-year-old Shamiyah Adams who was struck by a stray bullet Friday night inside a friend’s home during a sleepover.
Shamiyah was with friends eating s’mores and pretending to be around a campfire when she was shot, according to the DNAinfo.
She was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition where she later died, according to NBC Chicago.
Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy alleged “very young kids” were involved in little Shamiyah’s slaying, according to DNAinfo.
“Our murder problem is a gun violence problem and the access to firearms,” McCarthy reportedly told reporters Monday. “What we’re going to find in the case we’re talking about for the weekend is that very young kids are involved in this particular issue. As the case develops, and we solidify it, you’ll hear, but very young kids.”
McCarthy said no arrests have been made, but the “case is progressing nicely.”
Shamiyah was among 40 people shot in Chicago over the weekend.
