chicago boy murderedA 9-year-old Chicago boy who was fatally shot was targeted because of his father’s gang activities, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Thursday.

Tyshawn Lee, who was walking to his grandmother’s house Monday afternoon, was “lured” into an alley and executed in what McCarthy called “probably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime that I’ve witnessed in 35 years of policing.”

He spoke at a news conference from the South Side alley in the Gresham neighborhood where Tyshawn’s grandmother found his body with the basketball he took everywhere with him.

“At this point, we believe that Tyshawn was targeted, lured to this spot and murdered. We believe that this is the most recent in a series of gang-related, violent events,” McCarthy said. “We believe Tyshawn’s father has ties to a gang that is in conflict with another gang.”

The murder of the 9-year-old 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, law enforcement sources told the Chicago Tribune.

      Why aren’t the Blacks out rioting, looting and burning down buildings and protesting over such a horrendous crime?? Oh, wait, it was another Black on Black crime so there is no need to protest. it’s only appropriate to protest when a white cop ks a black criminal. However, when a Black criminal ks and innocent black child, then it’s okay with the Black Community. Is that it?
