Antonio’s Response would like to send our sincere condolences and prayers to the family of Tyshawn Lee, age 9 who was fatally shot near his grandmother’s house in Chicago’s Gresham Neighborhood.  At some point, enough must be enough.  From ABC 7 News in Chicago:

An 9-year-old boy was fatally shot in the Gresham neighborhood Monday afternoon and police are searching for the shooter, police said.

The shooting occurred at about 4:15 p.m. near West 80th Street and South Damen Street on the city’s South Side.

The boy was shot several times in the upper body, including in the head and back, in an alley, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Community activist Andrew Holmes was at the scene and said that he believes there were witnesses and is urging neighbors to come forward.

“This child should have been walking to school in the morning, not taking a ride to the medical examiner’s office,” Holmes said.

Police said an unknown number of people were gathered in the alley when an altercation started and resulted in gunfire, said Dean Andrews, Chicago police chief of detectives.
