A 14-year-old girl was shot Friday in Little Village by someone she agreed to meet and buy an item from on the Southwest Side, according to police.
The teen approached a female on the sidewalk about 5:45 p.m. in the 2300 block of South Drake Avenue after arranging to purchase an item from her, Chicago police said.
During the meet-up, the female pulled out a handgun and opened fire, striking the girl in the chest, police said. She was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.
The female fled in a white sedan in an unknown direction, police said.
Police said that a person of interest had been brought in for questioning Saturday morning.
