  • CHICAGO (AP) — A 15-year-old boy was shot and killed in a backyard about four blocks from President Barack Obama‘s Chicago home, police said Tuesday.

    Cornelius German of Chicago was found unresponsive around 9:40 p.m. Monday. He had been shot in the back and was pronounced dead at the scene on the city’s South Side, police told The Associated Press.

    No arrests had been made as of late Tuesday afternoon, they said.

    The teen’s death comes about three months after the fatal shooting of another 15-year-old, Hadiya Pendleton, who was gunned down in a park about a mile from the Obama home in the Kenwood neighborhood of Chicago. Police have said the alleged gunman opened fire after mistaking someone in the group of young people that the girl was with for a member of a rival street gang. Two men face first-degree murder and other charges in the Jan. 29 shooting.

    Police spokesman John Mirabelli said the motive in the latest shooting death was not known, but that German was affiliated with a street gang.

    German’s mother said he was supposed to be waiting for her to pick him up Monday night on a nearby street corner but was not there when she arrived. Then, after she saw several police cars race by, she started to worry that it had something to do with her son.

    1. Chicago has some of the most fascist anti 2nd amendment laws and it is still #1 in gun violence/murders in the USA. That proves those Stalin type laws don’t work for law abiding citizens.

      • BUT OUR CHILDREN HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THERE ARE FEELING, AND OUR EDUCATED ELITE HAS LEFT THE “GHETTO” AND PURSUED A LIFE THAT THEY BELIEVE WILL HELP THEM ESCAPE THERE PLIGHT. IF EDUCATION IS ONLY DESIGNED TO “CONDITION” U THE MIND IS NOT CHALLENGED AND WANDERS. NOW THERE ARE CLOSING THE SCHOOLS ALTOGETHER BECAUSE THERE ARE NO KIDS ANYMORE ONLY THUGS , DRUG DEALERS AND GANG BANGERS IN THESE AREAS. WE HAVE BEEN CONDITIONED TO CALL OUR OWN CHILDREN ANYTHING BUT WHAT THEY ARE, CHILDREN WITH A FUTURE

        • i agree the lack of respect for life is prevelant, the result of a culture with no respect for life or of the divine.

    2. I became a student of history to understand the common sense notion i had that the current conditions we live in are not an accident or by chance. this nation was forged by blood the men given the glory for this countries success did so by using the population as sheep. do we really think that will change ?
