The murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee led an Illinois congressman in search of peace to a supermax prison.

Congressman Bobby Rush went to the most secure prison in the United States – ADMAX prison in Florence, Colorado – to meet with two inmates who founded the gangs at the center of a dispute that police say triggered Tyshawn’s murder one week ago.

“Right now, as I see it, they’re part of the solution, not part of the problem,” said Rep. Bobby Rush.

The reverend/congressman Bobby Rush was in full pastoral dress as he talked with Larry Hoover and Abdul Malik Kabah – formerly known as Jeff Fort – about Tyshawn Lee, the targeted 9-year-old murder victim.

“They knew about it and were appalled at it,” Rush said.

Hoover, who co-founded the Gangster Disciples, has been in prison since a 1973 murder conviction. He was transferred to ADMAX for running a drug ring from an Illinois prison.

Fort formed the Black P-Stone Nation in the 1960s. His ADMAX sentence is the result of a terrorism-related conviction.

Investigators say decades later, factions of gangs founded by Hoover and Fort led to the Tyshawn Lee murder last week.

“Jeff/Malik and Larry said, ‘Use my name. Tell those youngsters to stop the killing,'” Rush said.
