KultureKritic.com Staff Writer
Chicago continues to be a national center for youth homicides, after a 14-year old boy was killed Friday night in conjunction with 13 other wounds from gunfire on the same day. Last Friday, there was a gang related shooting near the Lincoln Park Zoo, according to police.
Antonio Davis was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head, according to police. The boy was walking with a friend when a van pulled next to him and opened fire, according to police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.
The shooter kept firing on the boy even after he hit the ground.
“He shot him while the victim was down several times,’’ Perez said.
Police have not yet found a suspect for the shooting.
A second shooting left someone wounded in the park north of the Lincoln Park Zoo. Three more victims were in a separate city location when several vehicles pulled up alongside them and opened fire.
“One vehicle veered off the roadway and struck a 25-year-old man,’’ said Perez. “It then made a u-turn and hit a 21-year-old woman.’’
Police are saying that this shooting was also gang related. A series of other shootings also took place on the same night. Chicago is gaining a growing reputation for its homicides, labeling it as one of the most dangerous cities in America.
