3-year-old discharged from hospital after being grazed by bullets in Longwood Manor’s home
CHICAGO (CBS) – A toddler has been released from the hospital after she was shot in a Longwood Manor home overnight.
Police said two men opened fire from outside the home, in the 9800 block of South Throop Street, at around 2:20 a.m.
3-year-old boy grazed his butt. The little girl was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in good condition.
CBS 2’s Meredith Barrack spoke to the girl’s mother, who said the child was sleeping in their Longwood Manor home when gunshots were heard.
The mother said she hugged her daughter and 3-month-old baby and ran away.
Investigators spent several hours focusing on the back of the home, where bullet holes were found in the windows and partitions of the garage. More than a dozen shell casings were also seen on the ground.
The mother said she was ready to clean the house and move out after what happened.
No arrest warrants have been issued.
