Chiraq: Rapper killed, 4 others wounded while shooting video

Chicago's murder rate is over 70 percent higher over last year.

Here's the story of the latest homicide in Chiraq.

From ABC Chicago:
An aspiring rapper was shot and killed while filming a music video with other artists and friends at Foster Park on Chicago's South Side overnight. Four other people were wounded in the shooting.

Police said someone walked up to the group and opened fire near West 83rd and South Bishop in the city's Auburn Gresham neighborhood just before 2:20 a.m. Tuesday.

A 23-year-old man was shot in the back of the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The victim's aunt, Angela Tate, identified him as Damond Dawson, an aspiring rapper. She said she warned him about the danger.

"I always told my kids and my sons and everybody. Stay out of Foster Park because they're shooting people. You don't need to be up there," Tate said.
