A stray bullet killed an 11-year-old Chicago girl playing at a sleepover during a bloody weekend in the city. Shamiya Adams and friends were eating s’mores around a pretend campfire on Friday night when the bullet ripped through the house and slammed into the little girl’s head, CBS Chicago reported. Distraught relatives rushed to Mt. Sinai Hospital where they stood vigil, crying out early Saturday morning when they learned Shamiya had died.

“A great-grandmother should not have to bury her great grandchild,” Shamiya’s great-grandmother, Lourene Miller, told ABC 7. “This is a pain I can’t even explain it hurts so bad.”
