CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago police say a 6-year-old girl has been critically injured in a shooting on the city’s northwest side.

Police say the girl was shot in the back at about 8:10 p.m. Monday outside of a home in the Logan Square neighborhood. They say she was struck when a silver vehicle drove up and someone in it opened fire.

Police say the girl was taken by a family to Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center and then transferred to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.

No one had been arrested as of early Tuesday.


This story has been corrected to reflect that police say the girl is 6 years old. Police earlier said she was 7.
