An 11-year-old girl has died weeks after she struck by a stray bullet at a gas station in the West Pullman neighborhood.

Ny’Andrea Dyer was in the back seat of a car at a gas pump on March 1 when two people outside fired shots at each other, authorities have said.

Struck in her head, Dyer was hospitalized in critical condition at Comer Children’s Hospital until she died Monday night, Chicago police said.

Dyer lived in Richton Park, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

No charges have been filed against the person wanted to firing the bullet that struck the girl, police spokeswoman Karie James said Tuesday.

Police said someone fired shots at an 18-year-old man as he left the store of a gas station in the 100 block of West 127th Street about 10:50 p.m. that day. The man was shot in his groin area and returned fire but didn’t hit anyone, police said. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. Police said the man was charged with unauthorized use of a weapon.
