    Very sad. Endia had an argument with a close friend and agreed to meet her, thinking they were going to resolve their differences. Instead, the "friend" brought a group of people with her and a stolen gun. The girl shot Endia in the back :banghead: like a coward!

    Yes, this is happening far to often every where in this country. What is happening to our youth :confused:

    RIP, Endia. :rose:

    The argument Endia and her friend had was over a boy. At 14 years old! It's not worth kids losing their lives over.

    This is so awful. It was on the news last night. Looked into it a little more this morning and it just got more awful.

    It is absolutely horrifying that children are doing these things. It is very terrible in many parts of Chicago right now. :(

    MOO

    If the suspect is an honors student, you really have to wonder about the quality of education in that school. SMH

    I don't believe the grammar teens use these days indicates lack of education. I have an extremely bright niece who types words in the same manner. Drives me up the wall.

    That being said -- I'll never regret not allowing my children to participate in any social media sites. I know there is danger everywhere, but I refuse to invite it right into our home.

    We need to teach our young girls life is so much more than which boy you're dating. :*( RIP Endia. You didn't deserve this.

    "Assistant State's Attorney Kathleen Kain says the alleged shooter went to West Garfield with a large group and approached Martin. Kain says the suspect pulled out a gun and tried to fire, but the gun malfunctioned. Another person in the group fixed the malfunction, and the girl fired the gun, hitting Martin in the back, according to Kain. Another girl was also hit in the upper arm."

    Shooter&#8217;s Uncle Charged In Murder Of 14-Year-Old Girl

    The uncle of a 14-year-old girl accused of killing a classmate during a fight over a boy has been charged with giving his niece the murder weapon and accompanying her to the fight in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

    snip

    An eyewitness said Endia and the other girl who was shot ran across six lanes of traffic on Garfield Boulevard to try to escape, but by the time she reached the back door of a nearby home, the suspect shot her four times.

    This is an epidemic in our country: many young people simply do not value their lives or the lives of others. As a country, we need to get our priorities straight and figure out how to repair the culture in this country. Something just is not right.

    Why an adult would encourage a teenager to use deadly force for a petty argument is beyond me. I'm glad Flora is charged with 1st degree murder. He needs to be held fully accountable because he had the opportunity to defuse the situation.

    I'm a lifetime Chicagoan. I love my city.
    But I'm 33 and back when I was a tough Southside teen, beefs were handled by a hair pulling, knock down, drag out fight. Even girls. I've seen it dozens of times. Chalked it up to growing up in a rough city with tough kids.
    But guns? These kids handle their petty fights with bullets nowadays. Breaks my heart.
    This is why I raise my son in the suburbs. I'm sure it still happens, but the climate, the vibe, the general milieu is different in the less urban, gang infested areas.
    Disrespect. It's all about perceived disrespect. "That's my man, G. Stay away or get a cap in your ass." This is four corner hustle territory over there. That's a gang name.
    14. Just a kid.
    May God have mercy on this murdering girl and her cousin. But may Cook County show no mercy and instead, show an example to the teens hustlin on the Southside. Life in prison. End game.

    Two more people - ADULTS! - have been charged in connection with Endia's murder, including a woman, the aunt of the accused killer.

    Incidents like these can't be blamed directly on outside influences on today's youth because this incident, at least, was encouraged by some adults. I've never heard of adults becoming involved in controversies over teen romances/crushes.

    Thank you for keeping this thread updated Indy Anna. I've been following this case loosely on the news when I am able to catch it.

    It saddens and angers me how many adults were involved.

    I'm heartbroken for the losses everyone has suffered. I am glad this case is making it known that ALL involved in the trail of illegal gun use are being held accountable.

    IIRC, it is up to 6 people charged with murder now? Correct me if I am wrong. If someone can put up a tree/link of all charged I would appreciate it.

    <respectfully snipped>

    I think you're right, Cubby. In addition to the juvenile who fired the fatal shot, five people have been charged in connection to the case:
