Baby shot, critically wounded in parked car in Chicago

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police say a 1-year-old boy was shot and critically wounded while sitting in the back seat of a car parked on a street on the city’s South Side.

Police say the child was shot in the head Thursday evening. Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the boy’s grandmother was dropping someone off on the block when she heard glass breaking. She looked in the car and saw the baby had been shot.

Police say two other children were also in the car at the time. Authorities say the baby is hospitalized in critical condition.

Police said a dark, older-model vehicle pulled up and someone inside opened fire. Guglielmi says police are investigating and that the shooter may have mistaken the car’s identity.

No arrests have been made.
