13 People Shot by Gang related Suspects at Cornell Square Park, in Chicago Illinois

September 20, 2013 Chicago Illinois (WLSTV) Thirteen people, including a 3-year-old boy, were shot in the 1800-block of W. 51st Street on Chicago’s South Side. Sources say police are questioning a person of interest in the gang-related shooting.

Police sources say they are actively searching for more suspects in the shooting that occurred near Cornell Square Park, located at 51st and Wood in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, around 10 p.m. on Thursday.

All were transported to area hospitals. The most seriously injured is 3-year-old Deonta Howard, who under went surgery at Mt. Sinai Hospital. He is in critical condition. A bullet struck the preschooler’s ear and exited through his mouth. He did not suffer any brain damage, his family said, and he is expected to recover.

“A baby just got shot in the face. Three years old, shot in the face,” Rochetta Tyler, Deonta’s aunt, said.

“They say he’s good. They’re doing plastic surgery on him, but he’s OK,” Semehca Nunn, Deonta’s grandmother, said.

“He was talking when they first brought him in, but he’s heavily sedated now. He’s asleep, he’s resting, he’s in a room,” Pastor Corey Brooks, New Beginning’s Church, said. “He had an entry wound and an exit wound. He’s with his mother right now.”

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the arm and a 17-year-old girl was shot in the foot. The oldest victim, a 41-year-old man, is in serious condition. Others suffered minor injuries.
