Chicago 9 Year Old Boy Targeted, Lured Into Alley And Executed

A 9-year-old boy murdered in a Chicago alley Monday afternoon was targeted and executed because of his father’s gang ties, Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Thursday.

McCarthy called the slaying β€œprobably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime” he had seen in his 35 years in law enforcement.
