Jesus Take The Wheel: Kid Shoots 12-Year-Old Outside Chicago Elementary School

- By Bossip Staff

Two more young lives ruined by senseless violence.

A boy was being questioned by police tonight in connection with the shooting this afternoon of another youth who was walking out of a South Side elementary school, police sources said.

No charges have been filed against the boy in custody, authorities said. They said police were looking into whether that boy had previously made threats against the victim on Facebook.

The shooting took place at about 2:45 p.m. at Cook Elementary School, 8150 S. Bishop St. The victim, a 12-year-old boy, was shot in the back and rushed to a hospital in serious condition, police said.

A source said the boy suspected in the shooting formerly attended the school. Witnesses told police he approached a crowd in front of the building and fired a gun four times.

Chicago Police Cmdr. Eddie Johnson said at the scene this afternoon that though there were other students in the area, they believe that the victim was targeted.

Authorities said the victim and shooter had gang ties and had an adversarial relationship with one another.

After he was shot, the victim was able to get back into the school to seek help. The victim is a 7th-grade student at Cook, according to Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman Monique Bond.

    Why was a 12 year old in 7th grade?? — Um, (I’m trying to do the math real quick before I sound like I took the short bus, strapped on a helmet and wore a bib to my special school) but weren’t you 12 in 7th grade? That sounds about right, no?

    They should start creating another form of a bullet that isn’t life threatening cuz its obvious things aint gonna change, but we can change what ppl use to create these horrendous crimes. Parents be more involved in your kids’ lives.

  • Me

    I’m glad the kid didn’t die. I’m not an elitist, but many of the kids being both/raised today aren’t going to offer much that’s worthwhile to society. I’m starting to feel like I support population and reproduction control (and I don’t feel good about that).

  • Me

    I meant to type “being born”.
