UPDATE: Kevin Baker died early this morning. He wanted to be a veterinarian.
Awful. From the Tribune article:
A 19-year-old college freshman handed over his cell phone to an armed robber and was still shot in the head as he walked home in the Chicago lawn neighborhood, according to police and a relative.
The robbery happened about 4:15 p.m. Thursday in the 6200 block of South Campbell Avenue, police said…
The 19-year-old, described by the relative as a studious freshman at Harold Washington College, was hit in the head and the assailants fled.
The teen was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center and listed in critical condition.
Think hopeful thoughts.
