CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago police have charged a 19-year-old man they say fatally shot two teens in the South Shore neighborhood after they asked how tall he was.
Police say Laroy Battle, 19, opened fire on two teens in an alley in the 7900-block of South Luella Avenue around 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 20.
According to Deputy Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan, the shooting took place after the two teens and a friend had a brief encounter with Battle, whom they did not know, in a corner store.
"The victims commented, because, since Battle is quite tall, and they asked him how tall he was and you know, hoped to be that tall someday," Deenihan said. "And unfortunately, obviously we'll never see the full growth of these poor children."
As the three teens walked home, two of them were shot multiple times in the alley. Police said they recovered 9 shell casings from the scene.

Black on black violence...no one cares.
They do care. Whitey’s oppression caused him to murder the two teens. /s
2banana can SAY THAT AGAIN. NO ONE CARES. If it was said again and again like they do over a CNN, hopefully someone would wake up and CARE..for the REAL plaque of Black America.
Shooting after being asked about his height....
Notice Danny DeVito kept cool. And usually Michael Bloomberg.
Yep, it does not help the narrative of getting rid of President Trump. So those lives do not matter.
I didn’t know they piled it that high.
Not buying it
I wonder if they found the perps missing shoe.
This is such a stupid reason for killing kids.
Meanwhile I walked up to a bunch of black dudes in a park last week who were shooting off fireworks and asked if they had any extra that I could get for my nephews and nieces to see.
Probably not the smartest move, in retrospect.
Police said he had a previous conviction for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, for which he received probation.Maybe a plea bargain down from murder or manslaughter.
Ain’t buyin’ it.
There’s definitely more to this story than is being told.
Sounds like a tall tale.
No white people. No nooses. No protests. No riots.
I see what you did there.
Yeah, 3 innocent teens, just enthralled by a random stranger’s height, they were probably on their way home from a chess club meeting or from visiting an old folks home.
Don’t be daft.
So how tall was the jogger?
Being shot in the alley behind a building is not as painful as being shot in the package delivery area. Ouch.
