Police: Person of interest in custody for shooting death of 11-year-old

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Chicago Police confirmed with FOX 32 News that a person of interest is in custody for the shooting death of 11-year-old Shamiya Adams, slain last week during a sleepover on the West Side.

Police believe the shooting happened after a fight, and one of the men involved came back and started shooting from the street, a law enforcement source told the Sun-Times.

No one has been charged in the killing.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday night visited with Shaneetha Goodloe, the mother of Shamiya, for a second time.

The mayor “wanted to go check in on her and to again let her know the entire city is thinking of them,” said Kelley Quinn, Emanuel’s spokeswoman.

Shamiya and her friends were about to make s’mores in the microwave before the fatal shot rang out Friday night.

She was at a sleepover in a West Garfield Park home when a gunman outside fired an errant shot that struck her in the head. She died the next morning. Emanuel visited her family on Saturday.
