An afternoon of play in grandmother’s yard ended with a 4-year-old girl shot in the abdomen.

Khalise Weatherspoon was wounded at about 1:30 Monday afternoon when two gunmen emerged from an alley near the grandmother’s home in the 7100 block of South Rockwell in the Marquette Park neighborhood.

A 31-year-old man was also hit in the buttocks by the volley of about nine shots.

Both victims are now in good condition at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Police think neither was an intended target.  The gunmen are believed to be gang members, shooting at men on a nearby porch.

No arrests have been made.
