Chicago teen girls shot in head in separate incidents

The prognosis for 12-year-old Kanari Gentry-Bowers is bleak, her family said Sunday, and they're asking for prayers and support. Chicago Police said the shooting took place on the 1900 block of W. 57th street at approximately 7:10 p.m. (8:10 p.m. ET).

Anti-violence advocate Andrew Holmes says he is Takiya's cousin. Both girls are in critical condition. The child, described by loved ones as "always smiling", is now fighting for her life after being shot in the head by a stray bullet.

Police urge anyone with information about the shootings to come forward; there is a $2,000 reward for info about the shooter [and/or] shooters.

A 12-year-old girl was shot in the head while playing with friends in an unrelated shooting the same night.

Just 25 minutes before Takiya was shot, a 12-year-old girl became another unintended shooting victim in the city's West Englewood neighborhood. Her family told reporters that on at least three occasions, paramedics and hospital staff could not detect her heartbeat.

"Hopefully, she can pull though", she said.

"We are preparing to let her go", she says. She was shot in the neck and the bullet severed her spinal cord.

"I was in an Über on 79th and Halsted when she called me saying to pick up my sister and go to Comer [Children's Hospital]".

Holmes and Lopez attended a community rally with police officers Monday at the corner where Kanari was shot. "Further tests will reveal that tomorrow".

"We are not doing too good", Takiya's cousin, anti-violence activist Andrew Holmes, said Tuesday. The young girl was sitting in the back seat of a minivan with her 3-year-old brother, mother and aunt.
