12 Year old Chicago girl shot in series of shootings over the week-end

Chicago had a bad week-end for shootings. There were 10 in all. A 12 year old girl was injured in one of the incidents.
Ten people were shot between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning on the city's South and West Sides, including a man who died this morning after being shot on the Lower West Side and a 12-year-old girl who survived a gunshot wound on the West Side Saturday night.
The girl was standing on a sidewalk in the 500 block of North Springfield Avenue in East Garfield Park about 10:30 p.m. Saturday when she was shot in the left foot, police said. It's not clear exactly what the circumstances were that led up to the shooting, police said. She's in good condition at Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.
The girl's family didn't cooperate with the investigation, according to police.
The rest of the article goes on to explain more about the rest of the shootings. Children should be able to stand on a city street without being shot in the foot.
