    CHICAGO - An 8-year-old girl was shot and killed and a 5-year-old girl also suffered a gunshot wound Tuesday evening on the city's South Side, officials say.

    Chicago police say the shooting happened just before 8 p.m. in the 10700 block of South Indiana Avenue in the Roseland neighborhood.

    Tanaja Stokes was jumping rope with her cousin, when two people on bicycles rode up and started shooting.

    Stokes, a third grader at Cole Elementary, was shot in the head and died.

    Her 5-year-old cousin Ariana Jones was also shot in the head and is in critical condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center.

    Relatives say only women and children were in the area when the shooting started.

    "We were sitting on the porch watching them jump rope,'' Keauna Wise said. "And (they) just started shooting. It was nobody out there but women and kids."

    Tanaja's aunt, Alice Thomas said, "I noticed my niece laying down there. She was laying in a puddle of blood. It's so sad when we kill a child like that."

    Officials are investigating whether a fight about 20 minutes earlier might have led to the shooting, one police source said.

    A neighbor, Patricia Clay, said the fight involved three teens -- two girls and a boy.

    A group of about 20 teens surrounded the fighting youths, screaming, holding back the boys, calling each other names, Clay said.

    The sad reality is gun control laws don't stop people who want to get guns. Getting a gun (illegally) is easier than opening a bank account.
