Girl, 10, fatally shot by stray bullet in Logan Square apartment identified, authorities say

CHICAGO -- A 10-year-old girl was killed by a stray bullet Saturday inside a Logan Square home.

The girl was inside an apartment about 9:40 p.m. in the 3500 block of West Dickens Avenue when the bullet came through a window and struck her in the head, Chicago police said.

She was taken to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

On Sunday, authorities identified the 10-year-old as Lena Nunez, of Chicago.

Neighbors said they heard gunfire but believed it was fireworks. Police said the shots may have come from a group of males who began firing at another group in the block.

No one was immediately taken into custody as Area Five detectives investigate.

Earlier Saturday afternoon, a 1-year-old boy was fatally shot in Englewood. A 17-year-old boy was also killed in another shooting that morning in Humboldt Park.

A vigil for Nunez is planned for Monday night.
