15-year old boy shot multiple times and killed in Chicago

15-year old Anton Sanders was found on a sidewalk in a Chicago neighborhood, shot multiple times. He was later pronounced dead at an area hospital.

From the article:

Dante Simmons, 33, who lived in the 1600 block of Juneway Terrace, was considered a suspect in the slaying, according to the Evanston Police Department, which had been called to the scene, at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Juneway, because of a report of shots bring fired.

Simmons, who police also believe was involved in a shooting that killed a man at a River North Walgreens Saturday night, was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot in an Evanston alley this morning.

Chicago Police issued a statement this afternoon that said Simmons was a suspect in the Walgreens' shooting, but did not confirm Simmons was a suspect in Sanders' homicide.
