CHICAGO — A 16-year-old boy was fatally shot in Englewood Tuesday just a couple blocks from where another man was killed on Monday, police said.
Around 10:10 a.m., the boy was in the 1200 block of West 57th Street when he was fatally shot, said Officer Michael Sullivan, a Chicago Police spokesman.
He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, Sullivan said.
The boy was identified as Savon Davis, of the 5600 block of South Bishop Street. He was pronounced dead at 10:54 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
Police did not initially have an age on the boy, but witnesses thought he was about 17.
"He looked even younger than that. He looked like he should've been in school," said Barbara Rivers, who has lived in the neighborhood for 69 years.
"They shoot out here every day. They're fighting over property. Innocent kids dying over bull----," she said.
Rivers was across the street, in front of Sharif's Food and Liquor, on the corner of 57th Street and Racine Avenue, when she heard about six loud "pows" and ran back to her home.
"What else are we supposed to do? [We're] out here every day. It don't even bother me anymore," she said.
