CHICAGO (AP) — The suspected driver of a car from which a 10-year-old girl was shot and killed as she watched television in her grandmother’s Chicago home has been charged with first-degree murder.
Chicago Police announced the arrest of 19-year-old Christopher Lara of Streamwood on Wednesday. Police suspect Lara was driving a car June 27 when at least one occupant of the vehicle shot at gang rivals in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.
One of the bullets went through the window of a second-floor apartment almost a block away and struck Lena Nunez in the head, killing her. No other arrests have been made.
