Police Make Another Arrest In Tragic Shooting Death Of 9-Year-Old Tyshawn Lee

Police announced that they had made an another arrest in the death of Tyshawn Lee, a 9-year-old whose alleged gang-related slaying spurred outrage in Chicago according to Fox 32 Chicago:

A Chicago man initially planned to cut the fingers and ears off the 9-year-old son of a member of a rival gang but ended up luring the boy into an alley with the promise of a juice box and shooting him dead, authorities said Tuesday.

Dwright Boone-Doty, 22, was charged Monday in the Nov. 2 killing of Tyshawn Lee. He has been jailed since a November arrest on unrelated gun charges. Prosecutors also charged him with shooting two people about two weeks earlier, including a 19-year-old woman who died from her wounds. Authorities said revenge was also the motive in that attack, which the 20-year-old male victim survived.

Police say Tyshawn was targeted because of his father’s gang affiliation and a recent series of shootings between two rival gangs, the Gangster Disciples and the Black P Stones, in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. Investigators believe that Tyshawn was killed in retaliation for the Oct. 13 gang killing of Tracey Morgan, Corey Morgan’s 25-year-old brother.

Escalante would not say if investigators suspect that Tyshawn’s father was involved in Tracey Morgan’s killing. However, he said the investigation into that killing remains under investigation.
