    IL - Tyshawn Lee, 9, Fatally Shot in Alley, Chicago, 2 Nov 2015

    [snipped]

    A 9-year-old boy was shot to death just doors from his grandmother's house in the Gresham neighborhood Monday, and police said they could not rule out that he was targeted.

    A basketball that Tyshawn Lee took to school every day was found near his body in the 8000 block of South Damen Avenue, a block of brick bungalows, said his grandmother, Bertha Lee.

    [snipped]

    The boy was in an alley with "an unknown number of individuals" about 4:15 p.m. when an argument broke out, someone fired shots and everyone scattered, said Chief of Detectives Dean Andrews.

    Police said they were checking for any surveillance video and called on anyone with information to come forward.

    Two churches were offering rewards: $1,000 from St. Andrew's and $5,000 from St. Sabina.

    The father of Tyshawn is said to have gang ties and LE believes he was targeted because of those ties. Our city is suffering too many deaths each day at the hands of gangs. Now we've lost an innocent 9 year old. When will our children be safe?

    LE is reporting the father is less than cooperative in the investigation.

    Tyshawn Lee was "lured" into the alley where he was killed, McCarthy said, standing steps from the crime scene.

    "Tyshawn Lee was murdered in probably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime that I've witnessed in 35 years of policing," the superintendent said. "We're pretty certain that this is not an accident. He was not a bystander."

    Just unfathomable evil when innocent children are used as pawns in gang wars. To have no regard for life whatsoever, even the lives of innocent children, gang members must have hearts of hard, cold steel.

    RIP Tyshawn

    Can someone put a picture of this sweet boy in this thread? I just tried, but I am having issues while mobile.

    I knew gangs would shoot rival gang members, but to target a child is just disgusting and horrifying.

    And this father! It was his crappy life choices that led to Tyshawn's death and he won't cooperate to get justice for his son? This whole story makes me so sad and so unbelievably angry.

    RIP Tyshawn.

    I have no words concerning what I think of the father. Is he thinking he will get justice by keeping his mouth shut and will just retaliate? I certainly hope not. Why can't people realize we are making our own problems? Ugh!!!!

    I think the father might be silent because he's scared. Revealing the motives of the killers might mean fessing up to something that puts himself in jail for a long time. And he might rather scared for his own safety of for his other loved ones. Whoever did this are scary people who will stop at nothing and I would be afraid that they will hurt someone else too if I cross them further. (If I told the police who I think did it, I'd be begging them to tell the press that I wasn't cooperating. )

    “We believe Tyshawn's father has ties to a gang that is in conflict with another gang."

    The murder of the boy stems from a bloody clash between the Killa Ward faction of the Gangster Disciples and the Terror Dome faction of the Black P Stones.

    The Rev. Michael Pfleger, a priest in Chicago and outspoken advocate against gun violence, offered to pay to relocate any witnesses who feel they would be in danger for providing information.

    Nine years old. Big tough gangsters took out a nine year old boy because of their beef with his father and/or father's gang.

    When does it end?

    sadly I'm shocked it DOES NOT happen all the time , actually it probably does, we just hear about what the MSM wants us to hear , I'm sure this is not the first child.

    Kudos to the Reverend! I hope witnesses will take him up on the offer.
