5-year-old Shot Dead in Front of Father in Chicago Parking Lot; Suspects at Large

A 5-year-old girl was shot and killed in Chicago over the Memorial Day weekend while she was sitting in a stopped car with her father.

The girl, whose family named her Reign Ware, “brought life to our life, to the lives of outsiders, to everyone that met her,” her mother Raven Adams told Fox 32. “What a nice kid she was.”

Reign was shot and killed around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 26. She was sitting in a stopped car next to her father. The outlet says that her father was not hurt, but a 24-year-old guy who was not identified was.

As reported by the Chicago Sun-Times, Adams said that the shooting happened as her family was leaving a party. They thought they were in “the wrong place at the wrong time.”

A report from ABC 7 Chicago says that police have not yet made any arrests in the killing. The news source said that people who were standing outside were attacked by a group of people who got out of a car and started shooting.

Cops are suspecting that the shots came from a Jeep Cherokee. At the same time, Reign’s mom is telling those who did it to turn themselves in.

“I just want my baby to be safe,” Adams told the Chicago Sun-Times. There must be an end to the bloodshed. How long is this going to last? Until everyone kills everyone else? Let people live.

The girl’s family has also set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for the funeral.

Adams wrote on the fundraiser, which had raised more than $3,000 by Tuesday, May 28: “It has broken our hearts completely.”
