No arrests in slaying of 11-year-old Chicago girl

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Police say they haven't arrested anyone yet in the death of an 11-year-old girl who was struck by a stray bullet while at a friend's house for a sleepover. Investigators are hunting for the gunman who fired the shot that struck Shamiya Adams in the head Friday night. Shamiya's great-grandmother, Lourene Miller, says the girl was sleeping over at a friend's house that night and that the girls were making s'mores. She says Shamiya's mother, Shaneetha Goodloe, told Shamiya she loved her and kissed her goodbye when she dropped her off at the home a few hours before she was killed. Miller says police have told the family the girl was shot by someone apparently aiming at a rival in a gang dispute.
