Teen Death: One of Many Throughout Weekend

Teen Death: One of Many Throughout Weekend
Posted August 19th, 2013 @ 11:13am

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?"
