Chicago police say four people including a four-year-old girl have lost their lives in the shootings.

Police said Shamiya Adams was shot in the head on Friday night inside her friend’s house when someone fired from outside. She died a day later after the incident.

On Saturday night, a drive-by shooting injured four people and killed another near a block party in the 900 block of North Mayfield Avenue.

One man was killed and another injured in the first fatal shooting on Sunday. The incident took place in a bar in city’s Brighton Park neighborhood.
