An Illinois girl was shot in the head Monday night inside her home while planning her 12th birthday party.

The shooting happened about 9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23, in south suburban Harvey, police said.

According to the little girl’s family, she and her grandmother were finishing up party planning when shots rang out striking the victim, ABC 7 Chicago reported.

“I was sitting in the living room by the window and we just heard gunshots and my son said, ‘Get down’ and he went to knock all of us down, but it was too late, she was already hit,” her grandmother said.

The girl was taken to Christ Hospital in critical condition. Harvey police said no one is in custody.
