6 dead, at least 6 wounded in city shootings

16 February 2017

A Chicago toddler was shot and killed on Tuesday in what police suspect was a "gang hit" on a man in a vehicle with her, just a few days after two young girls were shot in the head.

According to the report, the 2-year-old was sitting in a auto that was being driven by his aunt when he was shot in the head. The man, who was in the passenger seat in front of the child also died at the scene, while the aunt, who is pregnant, was shot in the stomach. She is now in fair condition.

The chilling footage purported to show the three victims in a auto when another vehicle pulled up and a gunman got out and opened fire, according to officials.

Chicago Police Superintendant Eddie Johnson said nobody was in custody but the department has several leads. She runs into a house and yells, "They shot him ..."

Police say they have a good idea about the identity of the shooter.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel released a statement to say that when children are killed "our consciences are shaken and are hearts are broken".
