Share

A 19-year-old man was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the killing of an 11-year-old Chicago girl who was shot in the head over the weekend.

The toddler, identified as Lavontay White, and the man each suffered head wounds and died at Stroger Hospital, authorities said. The two were pronounced dead at area hospitals.

A third person - the 2-year-old's pregnant aunt - was also shot but is expected to survive. She is now in fair condition.

While Chicago police did not name the suspect in Tuesday's deadly shooting, Johnson did say that the department had promising leads and was tracking down the shooter and whoever else may have been in the auto when the fatal shots were fired. Police said the SUV had no connection to the deadly shooting, which appears to have been streamed live on Facebook.

After about three minutes, gunshots ring out and the expectant mom can be seen running out of the vehicle.

"Every parent, regardless of where they live, should be able to take their child for a walk to the park or a ride in the auto", he said. He also said police believe he was the intended target of the shooting. Lavontay became the third child in less than three days to be killed or gravely injured in a shooting in Chicago, which is mired in a surge of killings and gun violence that the city has not seen in almost 20 years. The mother was four months pregnant and was shot once in the stomach.

"Call 911! They killed him.I have a bullet in my stomach".

"This has got to stop", Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said at the crime scene, according to CBS News.

"They just don't fear it, and until we create that mental accountability to them to not pick up a gun, we're going to continue to see this cycle of violence", Mr Johnson said.

"Our consciences are shaken and our hearts are broken", Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel said in a statement Tuesday evening.
