Butler College Prep senior killed during shooting at Far South Side vigil


Family and friends attended a vigil for James Garrett at Butler College Prep, 821 E. 103rd St. The 18-year-old was at a candlelight vigil on the Far South Side near 132nd Avenue and Prairie Street Saturday, where a large crowd had gathered to remember a woman killed in a car accident. Then around 7:30 p.m., there was an argument and a man and a woman pulled out guns, according to witnesses. Gunfire erupted, and three people were shot: a 20 year-old-woman, a 48-year-old man and James, who was shot in the back and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in serious condition. He was later pronounced dead.
