On Tuesday, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel visited the home of the girl who was struck and killed by a stray bullet Friday night.
11-year-old Shamiya Adams was attending a friend’s sleepover near Gladys and Springfield in the East Garfield Park neighborhood when a stray bullet came through a side window and struck her in the head and killed her.
Emanuel briefly spoke to the media upon leaving the Adams home in Lawndale saying, “I came here as a parent to let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers.”
Emanuel did not comment on the investigation or arrests.
Top law enforcement officials tell WGN news they are close to making an arrest.
