CHICAGO (AP) — In a March 18 story about the killing of a 6-month-old Chicago girl, The Associated Press misspelled the names of the city's police superintendent and the girl's father. The superintendent's name is Garry McCarthy, not Gary McCarthy, and the girl's father's name is Jonathan Watkins, not Jonathon Watkins.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Chicago police expect arrests in baby's killing

Chicago police superintendent says arrests are likely in shooting death of 6-month-old child

CHICAGO (AP) — A 6-month-old girl killed in Chicago last week was sitting in her father's lap when a gunman opened fire on their minivan, not getting her diaper changed, as was previously reported, Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Monday.

Jonylah Watkins was sitting on Jonathan Watkins' lap in the driver's seat when their attacker approached and began firing, wounding them both, McCarthy said. Jonylah, who died after undergoing surgery for extensive internal injuries, was shot once, not five times, as a family spokesman had said.

McCarthy also said the girl's mother was not shot while she was pregnant with Jonylah, as the woman's mother had reported.
