  • A man woman and toddler were shot while sitting in a car in the 2300-block of South Kenneth in Chicagos North Lawndale neighborhood police said

A Chicago toddler was shot and killed on Tuesday in what police suspect to be a "gang hit" on a man in a vehicle with him. A 2-year-old boy, Lavontay White, was shot in the head and he died at the hospital.

White and the male were pronounced dead at the scene. The woman and the baby she was carrying, however, are both listed in fair condition by Mount Sinai Hospital and are expected to survive. She is now in fair condition.

Police are examining dramatic video that captured a shooting that killed a toddler and a man authorities say was the intended target.

Chicago Police Superintendant Eddie Johnson said nobody was in custody but the department has several leads.

Chicago police say a small child and a woman are in grave condition and a man is dead after someone walked up to a vehicle they were in and opened fire with a gun.

The boy was on the street when a dark-colored sedan pulled up and someone inside fired shots, grazing him, before the auto drove off.

Police did not immediately release information about the circumstances of the shooting. He also urged that homicides and shootings in the city of Chicago "has got to stop" following the recent killings of children. We have yet another innocent child in Chicago that can lose their life over senseless gun violence. The injured woman then is heard to state "I got a bullet in my stomach ..."

Family members said she was four months pregnant. The shooting comes just days after two girls, ages 11 and 12, were both shot in the head in separate unrelated shootings that took place within 25 minutes of each other over the weekend in Chicago.

The latest nonfatal shooting happened about 7:15 p.m.in Humboldt Park when a auto pulled up to a 22-year-old man who was walking in the 1600 block of North Keeler, and someone inside shot him in the back and buttocks.

About 11:55 a.m., a 23-year-old man was fatally shot in the 2000 block of East 71st Street in the South Shore neighborhood, according to police.

"Our consciences are shaken and our hearts are broken", Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel said in a statement Tuesday evening. Devonte, who is pregnant, was also shot in the stomach. "Our children should not have to keep paying the price for our inability to hold repeat gun offenders accountable for their actions".
