13-Year-Old Girl Shot In Chest During Violent Chicago Weekend

A 13-year-old girl was hospitalized in critical condition after she was shot in the chest early Sunday in Chicago's West Englewood neighborhood.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the girl was shot at from a white sedan that drove by around 12:45 a.m. as she walked on the sidewalk in the 2100 block of West 71st Street.

The girl's condition has since stabilized and no arrests have been made in the shooting.

Elsewhere in the city, three people were killed and at least seven other people were wounded in unrelated shootings Saturday and early Sunday, during a weekend of warmer-than-average temperatures.

Dale Fisher, 16, of the 7700 block of South Langley Avenue, was fatally shot during a drive-by shooting around 3:45 p.m. Saturday in the 6200 block of South St. Lawrence Avenue, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Lorenzo Johnson, 37, was found dead with a shooting wound to his abdomen inside an apartment located in the 6200 block of South Elizabeth Avenue around 10:50 p.m. Saturday. Earlier Saturday, a man shot in the chest was found on the building's back porch, though police have not yet concluded that the shootings were related, CBS Chicago reports.

Edward Clark, 20, was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head in the 4700 block of North Winthrop Avenue, according to CBS.
