Tevin Lee, 18, has been charged with murder and aggravated discharge of a firearm and will appear in bond court on Thursday or Friday, a spokesman for the state attorney said.

This is going to continue happening as longs as the dumbass commie libs think that guns are the problem. When a drunk driver takes out a family, why don’t the put the drunk’s vehicle in jail?

From the article:

The board passed a resolution placing a non-binding referendum on the Nov. 4 general election ballot in which voters can back a bill before the state Senate, proposing universal background checks for firearms sales.

Typical of moronic libs they erroneously believe that increased laws will have an affect on gun crime. "Universal background checks" would not have prevented this 17-year-old gangbanger from ILLEGALLY obtaining an AK-47. But libs are too stupid to get that.

“renewed cries against gun violence”

Chicago should have a law prohibiting guys like this one from having a gun.

Gun FREE zones are very very dangerous..

because decent people have no guns..

There might even a few decent people left in Chicago..
BUT that must be proved.. could be Utopian nonsense..

I'm sure there are many. And I feel for them. But they must fight for their rights, we can't do it for them. And I wish them success.

SMH. 11 years old. Her life is over before it ever really began.

BTW, the Chicago papers are already describing the shooter as a good kid who appeared to be headed in the right direction (despite being a known gangbanger), who was participating in anti-violence activities, etc.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-teen-charged-in-shamiya-adams-slaying-20140724,0,5258676.story

Personally, I think firing shots at a building with no concern for the consequences is not exactly the work of a good kid.

RIP to the little girl, anyway. Poor thing.

That's probably why the Chicago Tribune is defending him despite the murder of the girl.

He was a good kid so the gun must have made him do it

How is it they were able to apprehend this thug when so many of the other shootings go unresolved? Is this an extention of when seconds matter the police are minutes away?

“Teen” is a disgusting racist epithet for our melanic brethren and should be banned from use.

from the article:

Shamiya's murder stemmed from a seemingly routine altercation earlier Friday. A boy riding his bike was beaten by a group of boys.

That is routine - a group of boys stop a kid on his bike and beat him? or is this 'routine'?

He told an older brother about what happened, and later that evening, the brother, Lee and others went looking for the group responsible. The source said Lee allegedly opened fire at a group of boys in the area of the original beating, striking Shamiya

Let me guess...his grandma (or aunt) that he lives with says that he's a good boy, turning his life around, working on his GED (or getting decent grades in school), maybe an aspiring athlete, or rapper?

Am I close?

Thanks for the link. The website I gave the link to had additional information not included at your link. I can imagine that it takes time to gather that info and they post it when they have it. They’ll post it when they get it I’m sure.

No, of course not.
You ban cars for everyone but the military and police.

That's their worldview, though - that people are "basically good" and if you change their environment sufficiently, they'll act that way.

lol! Right. People are basically good save for those who had a bad upbringing. And how dare we hold him responsible for shooting innocents in a gang war, he was bullied as a child.

The news is simply going to have to stop reporting on crimes committed by “people of the urban culture”,

because any word they use comes to mean exactly what we know it means,

and then that word, be it “they” or “giraffes”, becomes “racist”.
