Tyshawn Lee Murder Suspect Held On $1 Million Bail

Authorities have nabbed a person of interest in the murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee. Corey Morgan, 27, was ordered held on a $1 million bond Wednesday on an unrelated charge of being a felon in possession of a gun, according to Chicago Sun Times.

Morgan was a “person of interest” two days following Tyshawn’s Monday, Nov. 2 murder, according to the Chicago Tribune. He was released without being charged at that time.

Morgan was arrested alongside Dwight Boone-Doty Monday afternoon 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.

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.
