CHICAGO (AP) — A 12-year-old Michigan girl spending the summer in Chicago was fatally shot, just a few hours after attending a cousin’s eighth-grade graduation, police and family members said.

She’nyah O’Flynn was returning to a house in Chicago’s West Garfield Park neighborhood Thursday night when she and a man were shot, apparently unintended victims of gunfire from a nearby party.

Her mother, She’vaughn O’Flynn, rushed to a hospital from Covert, Michigan, still in her pajamas. After she got to the hospital, she was asked if she wanted to see the body, the Chicago Tribune reported .

“I’m ready as I can be,” O’Flynn replied. “I got the Lord with me.”

Police said there were no immediate arrests.

O’Flynn said her daughter was a good student who loved playing soccer.

A 36-year-old man was injured in the shooting. The man’s mother, Linda Riley-Bailey, says Chicago’s violence is too much.

“They’re killing our future,” she said.

  1. The same corrupt party has been in charge of Chicago for how many decades? The definition of insanity is electing the same corrupt party over and over again and expecting a different result.
