Woman charged with shooting that wounded 12-year-old girl in Calumet Heights


A South Chicago woman was charged last month in the Calumet Heights shooting that injured a 12-year-old girl.

Telisa Pratt, 28, faces attempted murder charges in the Nov. 13 shooting, Chicago police said Friday.

Police said the girl was walking the 8,900 blocks of South Chicago Avenue around 9:30 p.m. when someone in a black car opened fire and hit her in the neck. She was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in critical condition.

No other details have been released, including Pratt’s alleged role in the shoot.

She is scheduled to appear in bonded court on Saturday.
