Dunbar Teacher Calls Chiraq A ‘War Zone’ After Former Student Venzel Richardson’s Tragic Murder In Drive-By Shooting

Greg Ingleright, a Dunbar Vocational High School teacher, is mourning the loss of his former freshman student Venzel Richardson.

“RIP Venzel,” he wrote on Twitter.

Ingleright shared a Chicago News Now story to his Twitter account titled, “Teen, 14, fatally shot in head in Woodlawn on South Side near 61st, Vernon.”

Ingleright is distraught by the violence-plagued areas where his students reside, referring to the city of Chicago as “Chiraq.”

“Teaching in a war zone has got me down #Chiraq,” he wrote.

Venzel was shot in the head during a drive-by shooting as he walked to the store with friends to pick up snacks Wednesday night. The assailant, according to witnesses, fired from a white van.

Venzel’s mother Laveta Richardson is reeling from news of her son’s death. Richardson and family say they don’t want the slain teen’s death to be written off as just another dead black kid.

“We don’t want Venzel to be known how the police are portraying him — as a gangbanger,” the boy’s aunt, Denise Richardson, told DNAInfo. “We don’t want him to be another statistic, just lying out there in the snow. Dead. Just another black kid. ‘Oh, he’s in a gang.'”

No arrests have been made in the shooting, WGNTV reports.
