A family is currently trying to make sense of a tragedy that claimed the life of an aspiring South Side Chicago teenage musician.

Andre Hunter, 19, and friends were walking home from Chatham Academy Charter High School Thursday, Dec. 19 when they were approached by suspects about 2:35 p.m. and questioned on where they were from, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Iman Frison, 18, allegedly produced a weapon and pointed a revolver at Hunter’s chest during his interrogation. Hunter moved the gun out of his way and Frison then shot him at the urging of friends, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Frison allegedly shot Hunter two times before the victim hit the pavement. Frison allegedly shot Hunter three more times before the gun jammed, according to the Tribune.

Hunter was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, according the DNAinfo.com.

Frison was later arrested after a brief pursuit and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Hunter, according to the Tribune.

Hunter is a renowned musician with the Bucket Boys. The Bucket Boys in Chicago are skilled musicians that drum on upside down five-gallon buckets.

Hunter and friends used their talents to escape the harshness of the streets and make some money.

Hunter’s friend Dondre, also a member of the Bucket Boys, said “…We ain’t gotta ask nobody for no money. We get money on our own. We ain’t gotta be on the block hustling or nothing. This our hustle right here.”
