It was just before 9 a.m. Tuesday morning. Hill was speaking with her boyfriend in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood when a silver car drove up and shots rang out. Hill appears to be shot right away. She tries to get away but struggles in the chaos while shielding her baby. She stumbles, but makes it behind a parked car and then falls to the street, clutching her child to her body.

Moments later, a car pulls up and two men jump out. They carry her and put her in their car to rush her to a nearby hospital. Her baby daughter, sitting alone in the street soon gets to her feet but is picked up and cared for by an elderly man some have reported was related to the baby.

Hill was pronounced dead at 9:25 a.m.

They're saying it was gang related. Two have been charged. Seems so weird that she was the only one that got hit.
