From ABC 7 Chicago:
CHICAGO (WLS) —
A $20,000 reward is offered for information leading to an arrest in the shooting death of Tyshawn Lee, 9, on Chicago’s South Side.
“If anybody knows anything (about what) happened, please come forward and find whoever did this to my baby. Oh my god, I love my son,” the boy’s mother, Karla Lee, tearfully told a group of reporters Tuesday afternoon.
Police and community activists echoed the call for information about the shooter.
“You’re an enemy of this community and the house that is hiding you, if they don’t turn you in today, you are an enemy of this community,” said Fr. Michael Pflegler, of St. Sabina Church.
Tyshawn was fatally shot in an alley near his grandmother’s home in the 8000-block of South Damen Avenue in the city’s Gresham neighborhood around 4:15 p.m. Monday.
Tyshawn loved to play basketball. Family members said he brought his ball everywhere he went and it was found near his body Monday afternoon.
