A 14-year-old girl has fallen victim to a brutal gang attack in Chicago as violent crime continues to spiral out of control under Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot's leadership.

On Wednesday evening, gang members chased down and hunted the young teen before shooting her in the head.

According to police, the victim was walking her dog with her boyfriend at around 6 p.m in Chicago's Southside before being attacked.

Three young gang members reportedly approached the girl and asked which gang she belonged to.

After replying that she wasn't in a gang, the trio reportedly chased her and shot her in the head with a handgun, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.

The girl was rushed to Comer Children’s Hospital where she underwent surgery and remains in critical condition, police said.

Ald. Ray Lopez blamed gang culture for the incident, saying, “The elevation of gang life has to come to an end.

"It’s not cute,” he told the Sun-Times.

"It only comes to one outcome, what we saw last night."

The three gunmen escaped the incident in an SUV, the Sun-Times reported.
