A 9-year-old boy was fatally shot Wednesday in South Side Chicago. Antonio Smith, who was readying himself for third grade, died after suffering multiple gunshot wounds in the chest, hands and arms, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Smith was found unresponsive in a neighbor’s backyard before he was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
Smith’s family is struggling to make sense of the crime.
“He was just a child, just a baby, still had a whole life ahead of him. And like, why? Just a child,” the victim’s cousin Kenya Eggleston said, according to ABC 7 Chicago.
Police have no suspects in Smith’s murder.
