(Reuters) - An 11-year-girl was shot and killed during a slumber party as violence struck Chicago during the weekend, local media outlets reported on Sunday.
The Chicago Police Department Sunday had not released an official tally of the weekend violence. But reports of another outbreak of gunfire came as the city has been grappling with a wave of summer violence.
City officials condemned as unacceptable a spree of gunfire during the Fourth of July holiday weekend that left 17 dead, with 53 people shot, including five by police. Authorities said at the time that shooting deaths in Chicago were down for the year.
