CHICAGO (CBS) — A 13-year-old boy was shot and killed in front of his sisters in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood late Sunday, and his family said the shooting might have been the result of a post on Facebook.
Following interviews with witnesses, police know the identity of the suspect they are seeking, a source tells CBS 2.
Anthony Diaz was shot around 10:30 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Grand and Austin avenues. He was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital about an hour later.
“I know my son got killed today. That’s very sad. I wish this violence stopped,” his mother, Laura de Domenico said Monday morning.
Anthony’s family said he and his 16- and 17-year-old sisters went out Sunday night to confront other girls about a dispute on Facebook. They expected a fight, but not a fatal shooting.
