Chicago’s mayor and police chief are really upset and trying hard to find the person who killed a 7-year-old boy in a sudden shooting.

The boy was leaving his home to visit a neighbor on Tuesday afternoon. As he stepped onto the sidewalk, someone started shooting. The police chief, Larry Snelling, talked about it at a press meeting.

The police are looking for the shooter. Snelling said the shots came from far away, and they’re not sure who the shooter was aiming at.

When the police arrived, they tried to help the boy by putting pressure on his chest. Then they quickly took him to the hospital in their car. Sadly, the doctors couldn’t save him.

Snelling said it’s really wrong for something like this to happen to a young child. He’s worried about what’s happening in society when kids are getting hurt like this.

This year, 127 children have been hurt by gun violence in Chicago, Snelling mentioned. Seventeen of them have died.

The mayor, Brandon Johnson, also spoke, saying the city is feeling a lot of pain. He’s tired of the violence and wants it to stop.

Snelling promised they won’t stop until they find the person responsible for this.
