(CBS) — A 7-year-old girl has been released from the hospital, after she was grazed by a bullet when someone fired shots into her Chatham neighborhood home.
Police said someone fired on a house in the 7600 block of South St. Lawrence Avenue shortly before 5 p.m. Monday. A bullet grazed the head of a 7-year-old girl who was inside.
The girl was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago for treatment. She was released Tuesday morning. She was expected to make a full recovery.
Police said they do not believe the girl or anyone else in the home was the intended target. Neighbors said the family moved into the home just a few months ago.
Neighbors said the block has been quiet for the past couple years until Monday’s shooting.
No one was in custody Tuesday morning.
