The internet should be used for positive impacts unlike people who get carried away by trivial issues.A 14-year-old girl shot and killed another 14-year-old girl because of an argument over a boy, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said today as murder charges were filed.
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy told reporters earlier in the day that the girls were fighting over a boy. According to prosecutors, the suspect went to a residence in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the city’s South Side at about 4:30 Monday afternoon to continue a fight that began on Facebook. According to a statement read in court and relayed later by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, the girl pointed the gun at a group of people standing on a porch and pulled the trigger, but it would not fire. She then “handed the gun to an individual in the group to clear the malfunction and they handed it back” to her, at which point she opened fire with what police said is a .38-caliber revolver, striking Martin in the back and a 16-year-old girl in the arm. The 14-year-old suspect’s name has not been released because she is charged as a juvenile. The gun used to kill Endia Martin had been stolen from a car on April 13, McCarthy said, adding that two other people, including a 24-year-old uncle of the suspect, face charges as police investigate how the girl got the gun.“What would have been, under any other circumstance, probably a fistfight between 14-year-old girls, because they were fighting over a boy, turned into a murder,” McCarthy told reporters. “You introduce a firearm and you have a murder.” The 14-year-old girl who is charged in the case was arrested about 4:50 p.m. Monday, about 20 minutes after the shooting, police said in a news release Monday. She pulled the gun from her waistband and fled the scene before the arrest.Endia’s stepfather, Kent Kennedy, said Endia and the suspect had been feuding on Facebook. “They had words and she gunned our daughter down. For what? What reason would another girl gun down another child?Kennedy said the family recently moved Endia from one school to another closer to home to keep her safe. Endia was killed about half a mile from her South Side home.
