Chiraq man charged with killing 11-year-old

Oddly enough there is no mention in any of the media reports if this thug is a member of a street gang. If we assume gangs are everywhere in inner-city neighborhoods and nothing can be done about it, then I guess most people have given up turning things around in places like Chicago's South Side.

From CBS Chicago:
A 19-year-old man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of 11-year-old Takiya Holmes over the weekend.

Antwan C. Jones was charged early Wednesday morning, according to Chicago Police News Affairs.

Since Saturday, three children have been shot; two are dead and one is on life support.

Takiya was in a van with her mother and other relatives Saturday night, when they stopped at her mother’s workplace in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood, and bullets came flying through the window. A stray bullet struck Takiya in the head.
That same night a 12-year-old was also shot in the head on the South Side. The victim remains in critical condition and the assailant is at large.
