15-year old Illinois boy shot and killed by 17-year old with shotgun

Asonte "Nazio" Gutierrez, age 15
A 15-year old boy, Asonte Gutierrez, in Lansing, Illinois, was shot twice in the head and killed by 17-year old Miguel Webster, in a homicide.

From an article:

Police found the body of Asonte Gutierrez in an alley in the 17000 block of Lorenz Avenue in Lansing about 12:40 a.m. Wednesday after someone called to report a teen lying on the ground, a release from police said. 
Gutierrez, of the 4700 block of West 185th Place, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy showed he was shot twice in the head with a shotgun and his death was ruled a homicide. 
Shooter Miguel Webster, age 17
An investigation by the Lansing police and the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force led to them obtaining a search warrant for a garage and home in the 17000 block of Lorenz, police said. 
Investigators recovered evidence, including the shotgun, that directly linked Webster to the murder, police said. Webster and Gutierrez were acquaintances and the killing did not appear to be a random act, police said.

According to another news video and article, Asonte (who was known as "Nazio" to his fans) was an accomplished songwriter, had released a CD, performed shows, and had a song on local radio stations.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
