We recently learned about the murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee, who was killed near his grandma’s house in Chicago. Cops were pretty much at a standstill in this investigation and were offering a reward to anyone who had any information, and well luckily information has come forth and arrest can finally be made, putting the Lee family more at ease. Chicago witnessed a tragic murder this week after 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee was gunned down in an alley way on Monday night in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side of Chiraq. According to police, an argument broke out and numerous shots rang off – fatally hitting the boy numerous times all over his body. Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Corey Morgan, a 27-year-old “documented gang member (and) convicted felon,” is in custody on a first-degree murder charge. But police don’t think Morgan was alone, saying he acted “in concert” with two others. Bond was denied Friday to Morgan, prosecutors said. Court papers provided by the prosecutor’s office said that “Tyshawn’s death is the result of a gang war” between two particular gangs that “came to a boil” after Morgan’s brother, Tracy, was shot and killed in a car with their mother on October 13.
An autopsy of Tyshawn’s body showed two perforating gunshot wounds, and part of his right thumb was lost as a defensive wound trying to block a gunshot, court papers said. The boy’s body had a gunshot wound to the head, a bullet graze wound to his right upper back, and a superficial wound to the right forearm, documents said. The shooting was “targeted and calculated,” McCarthy said. He connected it to Tyshawn’s father, who the superintendent said hasn’t helped police “at all” in the case, this news is completely despicable. To even try to harm an innocent child as a means of a calculated retaliation is a completely unfathomable, only understandable by the devil himself. May Tyshawn Lee rest in peace and his death not be in vain.
