Promising Life Cut Short
- The 19-year-old son of a Chicago police officer was shot and killed Sunday morning, hours before he was due to return to college in New York, police and family members said.
The shooting took place in the Wrightwood neighborhood on the Southwest Side just after midnight, according to police.
Neighbors in the 2900 block of West 82nd Street reported hearing several gunshots. Police arrived to find 19-year-old Arshell Dennis and another man, age 20, wounded by gunfire.
Reports in the media are saying it was a case of mistaken identity, which is of absolutely no comfort to the family we're sure. Deepest condolences to Officer Dennis and the entire Dennis family on their tragic loss.
