Let us not forget Tyshawn Lee, every year on January 23 and November 2. We made him one of The 82 murdered children of Unit 1012 and Janusz Korczak’s 190+ children where we will not forget him. Let us remember how he lived on this earth.

A 9-year-old Chicago boy was lured into an alley and gunned down because of his father’s gang ties, police say.
Tyshawn Lee was targeted by his killer and shot Monday (November 2, 2015) afternoon in the city’s South Side near his grandmother’s housem police said. He “was murdered in probably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime that I’ve witnessed in 35 years of policing,” police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Thursday at a press conference.
“This is not a stray bullet, not a drive-by — this is multiple gunshots to a child and only that one person shot,” Reverend Michael Pfleger told the Chicago Sun-Times. “There’s no question that this is targeted and that it’s an execution.”
The shooting happened at about 4:15 p.m., police said. Police said they are still investigating.
“We believe that this is the most recent in a series of gang-related, violent events,” McCarthy said.
Tyshawn’s father, Pierre Stokes, 25, told reporters he does not believe he is the reason his son was killed.
“I don’t believe it’s retaliation because I never did nothing for nobody to hurt my son,” Stokes said Thursday.
Photographs of Tyshawn Lee are on display at his visitation at Haven of Rest church in the South Chicago neighborhood Nov. 9, 2015.
