9-Year-Old Boy Shot And Killed By Gang Member In Chicago
Four gang members in Chicago were driving around with the intentions of finding rival gang members and shooting them. Seems like a productive way to spend your day, I know.
Derrick Allmon, 19, Jabari Williams, 22, and Michael D. Baker, 19, and another unidentified thug came up to two men during their drive who were apparently rivals. Williams handed a gun to Allmon and ordered him to shoot the two men.
As Allmon approached his intended targets on foot, he came across Antonio Smith in a rear yard of a residence,'” McCarthy said. “Believing that Antonio Smith was yelling a warning to his intended victims, Allmon shot Antonio Smith multiple times, wounding him fatally.
Antonio Smith, a 9-year-old boy, was shot at least four times by Allmon and died at the hospital. The boy, nor any of his family members, were affiliated with any gangs.
Allmon threw the handgun down a sewer and was later recovered by police during their investigation. The handgun was traced back to two other shootings, one of which was fatal.
Also important to note is that Allmon had been arrested in 2012 on gun charges and served 3 1/2 years for those crimes. He was released just a few weeks before gunning down this innocent 9-year-old boy.
