Chicago family blasts city, says they’re moving after baby girl shot in head: report


The family of a one-month-old girl who was shot in the head earlier this month say they are moving out of Chicago over gun violence in the city, according to a report.

Terina Smith was among seven people injured in a mass shooting in the city’s Englewood neighborhood on July 1. He was recently discharged after spending 15 days in the hospital.

“I’m leaving here, today. I have to leave Chicago,” said Teriyana’s mom, Tasia Banks Fox 32 Chicago. “I love this city, but I can’t live anymore.”

Chicago police said the one-month-old girl suffered a head injury when three men jumped out of a black Jeep Cherokee around 8:15 p.m. and opened fire.

No arrests have been made.

Teriana was hurt while strapped to the car seat of her mother’s car. He was taken to a local area hospital in critical condition before being shifted to Comer Children’s Hospital.

LOVEBYLIFE 32 reported that Teriana had emergency surgery and the bullet – which is still in her head – did not puncture her brain. He never held his breath.

“I never thought my baby was going to die, because he was telling me ‘Mom what happened?’ was looking like” Banks said. “I love these doctors and thank you so much. I want to thank you all so much for saving my baby.”

The incident happened less than six hours after another 9-year-old girl was injured in a shooting near the border of Grand Crossing and Chatham neighborhoods, the report said.

According to Fox32, the two girls are among 212 children under the age of 17 who were shot this year in Chicago.

Banks notes that she, too, was shot seven years earlier near the area where her daughter was injured.

“I was sitting in my car, and someone came in after the shoot, and I got shot,” Banks said. “It happens everywhere, but Chicago is the worst. It’s the worst.”
