Two Young Girls Fight For Their Lives After Weekend Shootings in Chicago

Her family called 911 and Takilya was quickly rushed to the hospital by emergency responders.

A toddler, believed to be between the ages of 2 and 3, was one of two people killed in a broad-daylight shooting Tuesday in Chicago. "Both of them need prayer", said Patsy Holmes, Takiya's grandmother. 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. According to police, neither child was the intended target of the shootings.

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

Kanari Bowers, 12 and Takiya Holmes, 11, were shot on Saturday night.

"The bullet passed through her brain stem", said 15th Ward Ald.

Less than an hour later in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood, 11-year old Takiya Holmes was sitting in the backseat of a blue minivan near 63rd and King Drive when someone opened fire, according to police.

Kanari remained on life support Tuesday morning at Stroger Hospital.

"Hopefully, she can pull though", she said. Every day her medical bills grow and the cost to her family rises.

Lopez planned to go door-to-door in the area of the shooting Monday evening in hopes of gathering information, as police continue to investigate, canvassing the area and searching for any surveillance video.

The 11-year-old is a cousin of well-known community activist Andrew Holmes.

No one is now in custody for either shooting, the Tribune reports.

Djuan Bowers, an uncle of the 12-year-old victim, said to WLS, "Instead of a gun, pick up a pencil, or a book".
