Gun violence in Chicago claimed another victim.
The Chicago Tribune reports that a mother was fatally shot on Monday afternoon while standing outside with her daughter in Chicago’s Roseland neighborhood.
Police reported that Adrianna Mayes, 21, was not the target of two groups who exchanged gunfire. Sadly, she was caught in the crossfire while standing next to her car. She was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center.
Harold Newton, Mayes’ neighbor, told The Tribune that he heard what sounded like two guns and scores of shots. He saw her drop to the ground, and ran outside.
“I got down there, rolled her over, unzipped her jacket, tried to apply pressure,” Newton, 38, recounted to the newspaper. “I saw blood everywhere. I tried to talk to her. She was just, you know, gasping for air.”
He stated that the toddler’s grandmother took the little girl into the house. “Luckily she just a year old. She might not remember,” Newton added.
So far, investigators have not arrested anyone.
