- A 17-year-old boy shot to death in the Union Ridge neighborhood Monday afternoon, after two others were wounded in shootings Monday morning in Chicago.
The boy was found behind a Taco Burrito King across from the CTA Blue Line stop in the 5500 block of North Harlem Avenue, according to police. He was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in critical condition and pronounced dead there, according to police.
Police said the boy was shot during a drug deal and that his car and phone are both missing.
Chicago Police Capt. Hootan Bahmandeji said a witness reported seeing the boy being dumped from a car in the area of Harlem Avenue and Higgins Road. The man was located in a parking lot next to a dental clinic and a Taco Burrito King restaurant.
So first, why wasn't this Rhodes scholar in school? Second, is this going to be bad publicity for the Taco Burrito King people? Third, can it be that the traveling ne'er-do-wells are migrating to where the police aren't?
