Fox News reported the sad news:
Chicago police announced Friday the arrest of a known gang member in the “heinous” execution-style murder of a 9-year-old boy, a crime that shocked a city familiar with senseless violence.
Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Tyshawn Lee was lured into a south side alley and killed earlier this month to get back at his father, a member of a rival gang.
“Tyshawn Lee was failed on many levels but at the end of the day our detectives were unrelenting in the pursuit of justice,” McCarthy said at a news conference.
Corey Morgan, 27, was arrested on a first degree murder charge, he told reporters.
