A 10-month-old girl is in critical condition after being shot Monday morning in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.

Fox News reports the shooting occurred around 11:15 a.m. on the Bishop Ford Expressway while the infant and her 17-year-old mother were riding in a car driven by the mother’s 21-year-old boyfriend.

Fox 32 reports the boyfriend heard a gunshot and discovered the infant had been struck in the shoulder.

Scott said, “Here we are again, praying again the baby make it through the night. This has to stop. And we want shooter to know we are looking for you and we putting $10,000 up for your arrest.”

On July 27, 2020, Breitbart News reported at least 60 persons were shot, three fatally, over the weekend in Lightfoot’s Chicago.
