A 15-year-old girl was shot and critically wounded when someone fired at her family’s car on Lake Shore Drive downtown Thursday night.
The shooting happened around 11:45 p.m. after the car stopped at a red light in the 500 block of Lake Shore Drive, Chicago police said. When the light turned green, someone in a red Ford Expedition began firing at their car.
The girl was hit in the stomach and a relative took her to MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, police said. She was transfered in critical condition to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.
One of her relatives told officers they had not interacted with anyone in the Ford before the shooting, according to police.
No one was in custody.
