20-month-old Cynia Cole (right) was fatally shot while sitting in a car in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side Wednesday night.


A toddler who loved cruising around on her Big Wheel and holding the end of a jump rope died today after being shot in the head as she sat with her two young sisters in the back of her parents’ car Wednesday night in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

The shooter apparently was targeting the girl’s father, police said.

Cynia Cole died just before noon at the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, a hospital spokesman said. Cynia — called “Coco” by her family — was just 20 months old.

The girl’s mother, Alberta Cole, said doctors had been trying to reduce swelling inside her daughter’s head.

The toddler was a “feisty” kid, she said, who loved “Disney . . . Hannah Montana, Dora the Explorer . . .” and liked “to sing along.”

Police believe Coco’s father, Jerome Hendricks, was the intended target of the shooter, who fired on the family’s car as it sat parked in the 640 block of East 92nd Place.
