Police Make Arrest In Nine-Year-Old’s Murder

Chicago police are charging a man in connection with the gang-shooting death of nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee earlier this month.  Police say Corey Morgan was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.  At the press conference, police revealed that two other men were involved in Tyshawn’s murder.  An arrest warrant has been issued for Kevin Edwards and a third man is behind bars on unrelated charges until police can formally make a connection to the boy’s murder.  Police believe Tyshawn was targeted for death as part of a gang feud, that may involve the boy’s father.
