Chicago teen who appeared in anti-violence video shot by stray bullet


From the Chicago Sun-Times:
In a public service announcement filmed at his school in Austin last year, Zarriel Trotter talked about how violence was wreaking havoc on his West Side neighborhood.

"I don"t want to live around my community, where . . . people keep on getting shot, people keep on getting killed," Zarriel, now a seventh-grader at Catalyst Circle Rock Charter School, says in the video.

Saturday night, the 13-year-old was in critical condition at Mount Sinai Hospital, under sedation and recovering from surgery after being shot by a stray bullet the night before.
In other Chiraq news, one person was murdered at least 23 others were wounded over the Easter weekend.
