CHICAGO -- On Saturday a group of activists marched around the neighborhood where a 1-year-old girl was shot Friday afternoon.

It was around 4:45 p.m. Friday when someone in a silver car fired shots, and one bullet went through the trunk of the car carrying the baby, striking her in the neck.

It appears to have been a graze wound, and the baby is said to be home and recovering.

Activists on the West Side called on the residents of the Austin neighborhood to condemn the violence with the same passion recently directed at the police.

Police continue to try to solve this case, but as for solving the broader problem of violence in this neighborhood, pastors, parents and police say it’ll take the entire community coming together.
