16-year old boy shot multiple times over Facebook argument

Eddie Ellis, age 16
16-year old Eddie Ellis was killed, shot multiple time in the chest outside an apartment building in Milwaukee. The shooting apparently stemmed from an online argument on Facebook.

From the article:
Those who knew Ellis called him a good kid; happy, smart and studious.
"He was a good friend," said classmate Darius King.
"We're asking for prayers, love, support, everything," said Akeisha McCormick, Ellis' aunt.
She claimed the murder stemmed from a fight on Facebook between the teenager's cousin and ex-girlfriend, a fight in which Eddie was caught in the middle.
"It's real petty. It wasn't worth it. It wasn't," explained McCormick.
