Alleged Gunman Charged In Murder Of 9-Year-Old Tyshawn Lee



The man who is suspected of pulling the trigger in the gruesome slaying of Tyshawn Lee has been charged with first-degree murder.

Dwight Boon-Doty, 22, is accused of carrying out the Nov. 2, 2015 shooting, according to the Chicago Tribune. He is also reportedly accused of killing a woman just weeks before.

A jailhouse informant provided authorities information leading to charges filed against Doty, according to the Chicago Sun Times. The inmate at Cook County Jail told police Doty bragged about shooting Tyshawn.

Doty was already in jail on a separate gun charge.

Corey Morgan was charged with first-degree murder in Tyshawn’s shooting death in November. Police identified 22-year-old Kevin Edwards as the second suspect.

Police say the three suspects spotted Tyshawn at a park and lured him into an alley where they fatally shot him.

Police named Morgan a person of interest two days following Tyshawn’s murder and brought him in for questioning, but released him the same day.

Morgan was arrested alongside Dwight Boone-Doty Monday, Nov. 16 after they left a Hilton hotel in a vehicle. Police confiscated a .40 caliber gun with 12 live rounds and a .45 caliber gun with 14 live round during their stop. Morgan was released after posting 10 percent of his $1 million bail for the gun charge.



Police suspect Tyshawn’s murder may have been retribution for the murder of Morgan’s 25-year-old brother Tracey Morgan. Tracey was killed in a shooting incident that also left his mother wounded while they were in a vehicle. The fatal shooting occurred after Tracey and his mother left a police-sponsored “put the guns down” meeting with many of the area’s gang members in attendance.

Tyshawn, a student at Scott Joplin Elementary School, was shot several times in the upper body, including the head and back, ABC 7 Chicago reports. He was laid to rest Tuesday, Nov. 10.
