14-year old boy shot and killed in Chicago

Antonio Davis, age 14
A 14-year old boy, Antonio Davis, was shot multiple times and killed in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago.

From an article:

The boy was walking with at least one other person when a grey van pulled up and a passenger, a man wearing a dark-colored hoodie, exited with a gun, said police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.
He opened fire, striking the boy. As he lay on the ground, the shooter kept firing. “He shot him while the victim was down several times,’’ Perez said. The shooter then got back into the van, which was driven by another man about the same age – between the ages of 20 and 25.
Davis' family was pleading for the public's help to apprehend the gunman.
"He was a loving kid, all he liked was basketball. He wanted to go to school to play basketball," the boy's aunt Latrice Strong told WGN-TV.
"We need some justice, we've got to stop this killing."
No one is in custody and a motive for the attack has not been established, Perez said.
No one else was hurt.
