The 14-year-old was allegedly meeting the 21-year-old to buy a dog, but pulled the pellet gun and “struck” the 21-year-old in the head, Fox News reports. The 21-year-old responded by pulling a real gun and shooting the girl.
The 21-year-old has a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) Card, which allows her to legally own her handgun, Fox 32 reports. However, she was charged in the incident because she does not have a concealed carry permit, and such a permit is necessary to carry the gun on your person.
Chicago Police Officer Jose Jara commented, “We’re not sure where they met initially or how they communicated, but all we do know is that the 14-year-old did show up with other intentions and she pulled out a BB gun.”
