From ABC 7 Chicago:
An 9-year-old boy was fatally shot in the Gresham neighborhood Monday afternoon and police are searching for the shooter, police said.There is a sickness in President Obama's hometown--one that he doesn't talk about much because he can't successfully politicize it. And as we know, Obama was a community organizer on Chicago's South Side.
The shooting occurred at about 4:15 p.m. near West 80th Street and South Damen Street on the city's South Side.
The boy was shot several times in the upper body, including in the head and back, in an alley, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
