A 4-year-old girl was shot in the shoulder Tuesday evening in the South Side Gresham neighborhood.

She was sitting on a porch with her parents about 7:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of West 88th Street when a dark-colored car pulled up and someone inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

The girl was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, where her condition stabilized, police said. She was later transferred to Stroger Hospital.

A person who lives at the home and “has a history with CPD” might have been the target of the shooting, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

No one was in custody late Tuesday as Area South detectives investigated.
