3-year-old and her father shot in Back of the Yards, officials say

It's no secret. There are too many guns in the city of Chicago. What's worse, too many guns in the wrong hands. 

A 3-year-old girl and her father were shot in the city's Back of the Yards neighborhood Wednesday afternoon, according to police.

According to WGN-TV News the shooting happened on the 900 block of West 48th Street around 2:45 p.m. Police said the two were injured when a man walked up to the girl's father, 34, and began firing shots. The offender fled on foot and may have gotten into a black sedan that was waiting nearby, police said.

The child was shot in both legs and taken to Comers Children's Hospital. Police said her father was shot in the foot and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center.
