A North Chicago family is mourning the death of a 15-year-old boy who died early Thursday after being shot in the head and left in an alley, said the victims mother, Roxanne Beech.
Travon Beech was an eighth-grader at Neal Math & Science Academy who had enjoyed basketball and football until recently, when he started staying out late and getting in trouble, she said.

A 15 year old eighth grader.
Nice culture ya got there. Lots of violence. Not many fathers on the scene.
I suppose it's the White Guy's fault.
” when he started staying out late and getting in trouble, she said.”
And WHO, Roxanne, is responsible for that ?
Travon? What is it with these names blacks are giving their kids?
When I was 15 I was in 11th.
it is not that unusual for a boy to be kept back in an early grade, like first grade... or even kindergarten...
I guess the tea party cancelled midnight basketball.
I just hope the plague of liberalism doesn’t spread into my neighborhood. Nothing good comes of it.
Lot of boys named Travon showing up on the news, and not in a good way..
Yesterday, we had a new checker in our market named Trayvonne, but his badge said “Tray.” Could not have been a nicer, brighter, young man.
At 15 you think you know everything. Finding out you’re wrong can sometimes be the last thing you learn.
i know this is racial, but i am going to say it anyway--black parents, never name your son Travon, Treyvon, Trayvon... and white parents, never name your son Hunter...
This one [and its variant spellings] is a name that seems to attract bullets.
While watching the Wisconsin high school basketball tournaments last month, I had a good laugh over the name of one of the boys.....Trapper. Yes, Trapper was his first name. Now I suppose there's going to be some enraged Freepers roasting me. "Yeah, I named my kid Trapper...and his brothers are Hunter, Skinner, Fisher, and Poacher. So what?"
“Staying out late and getting in trouble.”
Had he not been killed, it’s likely that sooner or later he would have killed someone else. Bags of dirty water breaking each other.
He was a good boy, didn't want to hurt nobody?
He loved his mother?
We've heard it before, lady.
It must be African for 'Dumb black getting in trouble and having no daddy in the picture then getting killed by a bullet.'
Would she be happier if he was knifed in the guts and left in a parking lot?
Who ever shot him saved society a whole pile of money and probably saved the lives of future victims of mommas little angel.
that is hahahahalarious!
He may have flunked one grade. I flunked third grad.
I thought I knew everything at about 19. That’s when it peaked and started dissipating. I remember literally thinking I was perfect, and if everyone was like me, the world would be perfect. I learned a lot when I looked into the perfect law of liberty.
As someone already pointed out, we white folks have some pretty terrible names too. Hunter, Trapper, Brason, Grayson, Tanner, Madison, Dyson. They’re all Pajama Boy names.
They all assume that these originate from happy Africa.
Bristol. Piper. Track. Willow. Trig.
Me too - most were in 10th and some, due to birthdays might have ended 9th. My birthday fell late in the year so I turned 16 before the Holiday Season.
Yep...and “Trapper” would fit right in!
Being shot in the head normaly means he was upfront and personal with his killer.
What’s an eigth grader hanging around a stone cold killer ?
Birds of a feather ?
I'm sure Trayvon's Dad was doing his utmost to keep his son on the straight and narrow.
Several of my grandsons friends are almost 14 and in the seventh grade. They all go a private church school, are very polite, do well in school and great kids. Their parents chose to start them a year later. Great idea for boys IMO, particularly if they have a female teacher who has no male children or ever had a brother. None of these boys are on ADHD meds, unlike too many of the students in public schools who are 14 year olds in the eighth grade.
No mourning for a dead tray table.
