Teen Girl Critically Wounded In Shooting At Far South Side Park

CHICAGO (STMW) — A 17-year-old girl sitting in a Far South Side park Monday afternoon was critically wounded when shots rang out, possibly from a passing car, police said.

The shooting happened about 4:30 p.m. in the 11200 block of South Ada Street, according to police News Affairs Sgt. Antoinette Ursitti.

Ada Park, a 15-acre park, is at that location, according to a Chicago Park District directory.

The girl was sitting in the park when a car drove by and shots rang out, police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala said. She suffered gunshots to the body in the shooting. It was not yet known if the gunfire that wounded the girl came from that passing car.

Paramedics took the victim, who was in serious to critical condition with a gunshot wound to the face, to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to Fire Media Affairs spokesman Rich Rosado.

The scene of the shooting is on the western edge of Ada Park, about a half-mile northeast of where a 6-year-old boy was wounded in a shooting at his home on the 1700 block of West Steuben Street on Sunday.

Calumet Area detectives are investigating.

    Chicago is turning into one huge cesspool of criminals, put a fence around it and take away their right to vote.
    By the way.
    Hi there Chicago it’s me from down state illinois. Hows the anti gun laws working out for ya. When will you idiots up there wake up and see your anti carry laws only dis arm the law abiding guys and keep the bad guys with their guns safer?
    Like hell take my family to Chicago for family fun. Getting them all killed in a drive up like so many others I read about doesn’t sound like fun to me oh yeah and in Chicago the criminals carry guns but I can’t hahaha NO THANK YOU CHICAGO!

    Rahm is more worried about getting those cameras to work so he can catch you hurrying home from the restaurants to use the bathroom than to clean up the cesspool. Why aren’t those cameras watching the neighborhood instead of working people running behind to get to works license plates. Running behind because of the big potholes in the road lord knows they have created more danger than going 5 mile an hour over has.

    Why is Barak even running again? He’s done enough damage.
