Jahnae Patterson, 17, was killed in a shooting Sunday morning.

A teen girl was killed and five other people were wounded in a shooting in Chicago's Lawndale neighborhood Sunday morning, police said.

The victims were standing on the sidewalk in the 1300-block of South Millard Avenue at about 2:34 a.m. when police said two gunmen approached on foot and fired shots.

A 17-year-old girl was shot in the face and pronounced dead at the scene.

She was identified as Jahnae Patterson. Patterson's family held an impromptu vigil Sunday to remember the young woman who hoped to become a lawyer.

"They took my baby's life for no reason," said Patterson's mother, Tanika Humphries.
