Teen Death: One of Many Throughout Weekend

Teen Death: One of Many Throughout Weekend

From Friday night into Sunday morning, at least six people died and 28 wounded across Chicago, ranging from Roseland to West Rogers Park.

Among those dead is 18 year-old Daquan Boyd. Boyd was shot to death Saturday night on his way home from a South Austin festival. Boyd managed to escape into an alley after two men on bikes open fired on him and a friend, but died shortly after.

Police confirm Boyd was not gang affiliated and believe his death was a case of mistaken identity 

Boyd's father was quoted by the Chicago Tribune saying, " All the youth are getting killed. The youth are the future...and what kind of future are we going to have if the youth keeps on getting killed?"
