The Chicago boy who was found executed in an alley was "specifically targeted" and lured to the location where he was killed on Monday.

Police say 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee was specifically targeted due to his father's alleged gang affiliations. Police believe Lee's death was in retaliation for the recent murders of 2 gang members.

Lee was lured into an alley and shot three times at close range in the head and back at about 4:15 p.m. Monday. His body was found near the 8000-block of South Damen Avenue and West 80th Street in Chicago's Gresham neighborhood. He lived in the 2000 block of West 80th Street and was on his way to his grandmother's house when he was killed.

"At this point, we believe that Tyshawn was targeted, lured to this spot and murdered," Police Superintendant Garry McCarthy said Thursday at a news conference.

"Tyshawn's father has ties to a certain gang that is in conflict with another gang," McCarthy told reporters.

McCarthy said Lee's father, Pierre Stokes, is not cooperating with police.

Stokes told The Chicago Tribune he believed his son was targeted.

"If it wasn't a target, he wouldn't have got hit so many times in the back and the face," said Stokes.

"I don't want to harm nobody," Stokes added. "I just want to see justice for my son by seeing the person who did it - whoever did it - locked up. That's all I ever want."

Police are investigating whether other shootings in the neighborhood are linked to Tyshawn's murder.

Police questioned a person of interest who walked into the police precinct on Wednesday. The POI was interrogated for nine hours. He was released at midnight.

Tyshawn’s mother, Karla Lee, posted a video on her Facebook page. “Thanks for all your support,” Lee said. “All I can do is just pray. This sh*t hurts. It hurts. I miss my son.”

"I just want justice for my son," she told local station ABC7. “Whoever knows anything, please let the police know. Please. He was only nine. He didn’t deserve this.”

A $35,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Lee's killer(s).

"A baby was executed, a baby was assassinated in this alley. We have gone to a new low," said Father Pfleger, of St. Sabina Church, during a news conference on Thursday.

  • Greg: Less hate, more love.

    Hey baby how's it going?

  • 1/8

    Disgusting! People need to put more thought into who they exchange body fluids with. In the end, it is the children who suffer most.

  • Phatbootycutie

    Gdmorning everybody! May he R.I.P.....God bless

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    dang this got me in tears i did not need to read this so early in the morning

  • MookieFly

    So sad for someone at a young age to be taken away like that. How do you muster up the strength to shoot a 9 year old??

  • Phatbootycutie

    All is good handsome I saw you and just had to say Gdmorning to you. Have a great day TGIF

  • 1/8

    We need to stop ignorant people from breeding.

  • Greg: Less hate, more love.

    Thank you cutie you too. TGIF indeed.

  • Handle your issues

    Who ever did that to a child is on the fast track to hell.....you can run from man, but you can't run from God. Justice will be done.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    People out here so cold blooded man. No matter what problem you have with someone you don't take it out on a kid. Why are these types of animals still breathing? Praying for the family man.

  • SpillyNillie

    I really don't think that's the solution and furthermore, a
    woman has lost her ONLY child...it's extremely insensitive for you to insinuate that she's (1) ignorant and (2) that she just bred her beloved son like a dog breeds a litter of puppies...

  • Too Many Colors

    God bless this baby and prayers for Karla.

    Waits for the fight to break out. Folks get SUPA UGLY in posts like this. See one already.

  • Ms. YaYa

    If you have a problem with me you take it up with me!!! You leave my family out of it!!! I'm so angry right now it's ridiculous...

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I'm praying hard for Karla man. If she has other children with this man she needs to go.

  • Greg: Less hate, more love.

    I think he meant the father, not the mother, meaning it's unfortunate that she had a child with him.

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Gm Mz.Jeni,say the mother has had to be admitted into a hospital...mentally shes out.Lord,my heart goes out to her!

  • Liz

    The writing on the picture says "This is my only baby" so I think she realized the type of person the father was and left him alone. So sad that she had to go through this and know someone deliberately hurt her baby for no reason.

  • Junkanoo

    This is the lowest of the low this child lost his life because of his dumb ass father.The person who killed this child deserves a slow vicious death

  • SpillyNillie

    I could only imagine. I actually cried real tears reading this. People say all the time that losing a child is a pain that can't be described. This is absolutely awful...my prayers are with her.

  • Tracy Taylor

    Mine too

  • Junkanoo

    Am out that picture of him an his mom cut too deep. We're always going on about police brutality but look at what we're doing to each other.

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    I can't wait till God destroys these wicked Niiggers from the face of the planet... sins of fathers

    ... and the dumb black women who procreate with these self hating bums, they need their assets beat and or destroyed too!!

    We are trying to share knowledge and build our people, but you got these useless cowards that wanna keep destroying rather than building.

    This is so sad and heart breaking. it's a shame that a kid had to pay for his farthers actions. smh

  • Too Many Colors

    Already.

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    This is why it is necessary to go back to the Old Testament way of living.... God had the people Stone a wicked Niigger to death, to keep that wicked mentality from spreading...

    You best believe we are going back to that when Christ returns

  • MzKeriBabee

    This crime was committed by an EVIL EVIL person... who in their right mind could lure a 9 year old boy and shoot him execution style for retaliation??????????????????? This is an ultimate LOW!!!

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    asses**

  • Too Many Colors

    Say it!

  • 1/8

    It was extremely insensitive to shoot her son in face and body, multiple times. THAT was insensitive.

    We are dealing with an aggressive, malignant cancer, there is no time for niceties. People need to be held accountable for their role in their children's suffering.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Don't feed it either ....

  • Just Keya

    This child's father needs to go to jail too. ANd don't tell me no shyt about locking up our black men. It's HIS damn fault the child is dead, and on top of that, he is NOT even trying to help the police find out who killed his own damn son. My guess he knows exactly who it is. This poor mother. RIP little guy. smh

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I saw that ..... smh sad

    Yup. It's going to turn into, no don't lock up our black men. It's the white mans fault, because they created gangs. FOH. Lock the dad up, AND the ones who shot this little boy.

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    Sorry to say it, but that father looks like a lot of YOU alls relatives, or fathers, or sons, or brothers...

    When one black man kills another black man, not only did he kill himself as well, he killed YOU family that look like him too!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Not cooperating with the police but he can do an interview with the Chicago Tribune.

  • Yardgirl

    What kind of world are we living in when an innocent child is killed for the sins of the father?? Evil is real!! R.I.P. baby boy

  • SummerBaby

    My assumption is the dad isn't cooperating because he plans to hold court in the streets. ?

  • SpillyNillie

    Agreed.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Of course. It's a never ending cycle.

  • Just Keya

    Sigh. So what if the people who shot this child, has parents who are NOT anything like them? How is this a solution? And how do you know that the child's momma is ignorant? this man she had the boy with, could of gotten into the gang after they broke up or anything. This statement is ignorant.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Morning to EVERYBODY! Prayers to all. Parents should never have to bury their children. There is a special place in hell for whoever did this. Karla needs to get as far away as possible from Pierre.

  • Just Keya

    Smdh. Saying what?! And if he can do interviews he can help with finding who shot his son like a damn dog in the street. People kill me.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Well said!!

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    Children paying for their fathers sins is some real stuff that God put in place, But that does not mean the father himself will not pay... Oh he gon pay... believe it!!!

  • Blue

    SMH

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    and the cycle continues smh

  • SummerBaby

    Unfortunately people have been harming family members of gang members since the beginning of time. I'm not saying it's right at all! Sad indeed! ?

  • LibraGirlonly

    I hope it's done quick and painful.

  • Wildcat34

    This is so heartbreaking. These losers stalked this poor child in order to commit such an awful crime. I can't imagine the grief this family is going through. Unfortunately, I can see more violence coming from this.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Don't let anger take control

  • SpillyNillie

    Way more violence...

  • SummerBaby

    Yep we have to break that cycle.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    There are a lot of soulless people walking around here ..... I have seen it so much more lately ..... I have felt vibes from complete strangers in grocery stores .... that made my skin crawl..... I stay to myself for a reason ... smh

  • Di Ana

    Shameful. A 9 year old should not be walking down the street by themselves.

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    Whats really annoying is that these so called gangsters will not even think about raising a hand to the cave demons... some real coward shit...

    Georgia Zimmerman is still breathing and boasting, where are these so called gangsters at now?

  • SpillyNillie

    If we don't learn to love, respect, and protect each other as a race, no one else will. #thinkaboutit

  • 1/8

    She made a baby with a lowlife slug, who is refusing to cooperate in the murder investigation of his own son. I think that speaks for itself.

  • Yardgirl

    I am not sure what the hell is going on in Chicago, the murders are out of control and getting worse each day. The real flucked up part is that the father is most likely going to retaliate and then they are going to retaliate and so on and so on!! My heart hurts.

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Gm Slantz,craziest thing is the pappy feel he has the right to NOT SAY AND OR HELP LAW ENFORCEMENT FIND WHO DID THIS TO THEIR SON!!!!guhl,that nigga cudnt tell me which way was up!!!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    That's the problem .... not much thinking these days .... smh

  • SummerBaby

    Me too! I came across a guy so evil & soul less one night I never forgot his face. Fast forward a few months after my encounter with him & I saw his pic on the news for raping multiple women.

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    The cave demons will start killing the newborn children soon... as in they are gonna start shooting the newborns in the hospital, and getaway with it too!

  • Just Keya

    Was he a lowlife person when she met him? You don't know that. And you never really know who people are, so again, that does not make you an ignorant person. If people started calling YOU ignorant for the assumptions you make, and then said oh well he is ignorant, so his momma and daddy must be ignorant as well, would that be right? No.

  • SpillyNillie

    Wow!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Am I the only one that feels that our military needs to step in with law enforcement here ..... we have more than enough military people ..... but yet our main focus is on protecting things on the outside from getting in .... never mind our own police and civilians pretty much have been in a war ... smh .... we need a new damn post chile

  • LibraGirlonly

    What's wrong with this generation? The only thing they care about is material sh$$t and being on social media , they need to be trying to get an education, Black people please make sure your child is raised properly. Women put your children first and that means being by yourself if you have to.

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    Yeah that city has legions of demonic entities flying around over there... the black men there are possessed with a murderous spirit. Sorry to say, but
    That city needs to be Destroyed.

    Saying a whole lot of nothing. All I can do is pray for his mother. This poor woman has to bury her baby. She's cheated out of graduations, weddings, grandchildren etc.

Giving our homegirl the bartender a hard ass time. I asked was he drunk. She said no. He was drinking SODA. It was other folks in there tho.

    Ignorance and violence are often generational; so, yes, Mr. Stokes parents are probably ignorant and violent.

    Well, and one poignant thing she said while wailing (that sound is a horrible thing) is: I didn't expect to lose my baby this soon. That gave me pause and broke my heart.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    This dad seems SHADY as all hail! :tea:
    His body language speaks volumes.
    Never should a baby have died for what their dad did, so the COWARDS that did this got a special place in hell. GOD doesn't play with his children :nono:

    More importantly this baby is now in Heaven :pray:

  • SameoleJ

    This is an assumption and a broad one at that. You can raise your child to be the best person in the world, but it will ultimately be their choice which way to go. However, thank you for the words "often' and "probably", as they do exclude some people.
    As for this story, can we just stick to the prayers for this mother who lost her child, a child who is gone too soon and a world that is being overrun with hate and senseless deaths. Doesn't matter if the father was a bad guy, the one's who did the killing are punks......any "beef" should have been taken up with the other adult, not a defenseless child.

  • SameoleJ

    But get the one's who did this first!! What kind of people go after a child, because of their issue with the parent? PUNKS (answered my own question). I am not condoning the father's part, nor am I excusing it, but unless it is said that he killed one of their children, his actions don't validate their actions. But I agree, can we get a new post.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    AND they're going to get down to the bottom of this because rumor has it that these folks put all their business on social media :tea:

    Animals. No other way to describe them. And the father needs his ass whooped for banging to begin with.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Okay. I don't care about who gets offended but this "no snitching" chit is obsurd and only prominent among us ignorant blacks. His father is a disgrace for not cooperating with police. Who cares if it costs him his life for telling! His son just paid the ultimate price! He should be GLAD to sacrifice his life! now that's justice for his boy because guess what?! He's just as much to blame for exposing the child to this putrid lifestyle !!!!

    Niccas in America, the cancer that continues to grow:

    Please, the mother was posting pictures on instagram of herself online with illegal Guns (& she took them down when they became public), and the father is a known gang memeber.
    These Tribal frauds acting up a storm in the so-called Black community, collecting gofund me hustles (for funerals) and right back to the same sh^t the next day.
    Kinfolk, save those emotional sympathies (human feelings & $$$) and b.s prayers (never work & never ever proven with factual evidence of them working) that dead kid is in a better place now (unfortunately), then he would have been still alive, living with those animals called his family in that rentiers neighborhood. More violence will surely come that is a fact!

    Rudderless, no empathy having, brain dead zombies! Even animals follow a code so you are right, it is an insult to animals to equate the two. Until we as black address our own with the same vitrial that we do when a white person kills a black person, we will continue to have this. #Justiceorelse unless it's a black person killing another black person. Whoever, executed this baby should not be amble to move around and hide. Everyone should snitch on him and shouldn't need a 35k reward to do so. Also, owness is on the parents to be parents and stop running around like thots and gang bangers exposing their kids to these dangers.

    mind you...she was 17 when she made this baby. I am sure we cant blame her for those actions. How far ahead do we expect a 17 year old to look when making a baby....I dont want to be judged by my high school boyfriend.

    His daddy needs to cooperate, you got time to do an interview you got time to tell the police who got beef with you.

    "Doesn't matter if the father was a bad guy, the one's who did the killing are punks..."
    ______________________

    The father's character and the mother's judgement are directly related to the child's death.

    Mr. Stokes is probably a murderer himself, and his son's death is a retaliatory shooting. More than likely, they couldn't get him, so they went after his son.

    Apparently, there's a Facebook post that indicates the little boy refused to tell the gunman where his father was, so "he got what he deserved."

    As far as the mother is concerned, I have a hard time feeling sympathy for her. She chose a vile lifestyle when she hitched her ovaries to a worthless slug.

    She set her son up for failure by procreating with a "man" who isn't fit to take out the trash, let alone father a child.

    My tears are for that child. He was born into a snake-pit of fools.

    RIP baby! "GOD" I am asking you to comfort this family right now in your Holy Name. That's all I have right now, and Thank you! Amen

  • SameoleJ

    What I am saying is....although his actions have resulted in this, you cannot look to the parents and charge them completely with the actions of others. I am sure if they had any idea that their baby would be targeted, he would NOT have been walking to grandma's house alone. Apparently the mother did learn from this, as in 9 years, she only procreated with him once. I find it pretty amazing that you throw out jabs because you felt attacked at one time and have since changed your name to 25%, but you are pretty much the first in line to blast another person and pass judgment. But, it is Friday and my day is almost over. Have a good one.

    The police are already partially militarized. Bringing in the military has a potential to create more problems.

    Whoever did that to this precious little boy, may they rot in hell! How could anyone hurt, let alone kill an innocent child!

    My views on this subject matter aren't related to any so-called attacks on me. I'm not a thin-skinned person and I don't operate that way.

    This is about adult choices ultimately harming a child.

    Pops is grown. He knows what the game entails. Grown folks in gangs are the lamest of the lame.

  • SameoleJ

    I don't care what a parent does...A CHILD SHOULD BE OFF LIMITS. No excuse in the world for attacking a child, because you dislike that parent. So because someone in high school dislikes me because of something I did back then, is it okay for them to attack my child? I ask this, because if you do the math, the mother was only 17 when she had her son and her mindset could have changed. I know for sure, I would not date the same type of person I procreated with and other than being blessed with my children, would gladly redo that time in my life. Do we know if the killers were people he wronged recently? Could they have been incarcerated for a while and came home with a grudge? There are too many unanswered questions to assume the worse of the parents, especially the mother, but we can definitely say the one's who killed him are the SCUM of the EARTH.

    For all we know the perp could be 12. That's how bad it has gotten in these streets. I just pray that the baby didn't see it coming.

  • FoxyDiva

    Me too! If we can go over and fight Isis I don't kno why nothings being done in Chicago! The stuff I keep reading about Chi is like scenes out of a movie. Praying....

    She was about that drug life. Don't let your emotions cloud your judgement.

  • 1/8

    Before her son was murdered, this so-called grieving mother was on Facebook giving props to Pablo Escobar, an infamous drug Lord, who killed innocent people... some of them CHILDREN!

    Karla Lee and Pierre Stokes are a perfect match... like dirt and earthworms.

  • NeverSurprised

    I'm sure Black Lives Matter is planning to storm the streets of Chicago any minute to address the death of this baby. But I won't hold my breath, since the only black lives that matter to these hypocrites are the handful of blacks who are shot by white cops. Neither BLM nor Sharpton nor Jesse Jackson nor any of the so-called black "leaders" will ever mention that the REAL threat to black children are the BLACK MALES who have turned the streets of their OWN NEIGHBORHOODS into nightly shooting galleries.

    But since it's Chicago, your president's "home town", I'm sure Barry will issue a statement about this baby's senseless death, or perhaps hop on Air Force One to fly there to comfort the relatives, just as he comforted the WHITE relatives in Colorado after the theater shooting. And of course he makes a beeline to the phone to make a "congratulatory" call every time a gay man comes out of the closet, so SURELY an innocent black child's MASSACRE in his home town will merit the same degree of attention. No?

  • NeverSurprised

    Three babies were killed in Cleveland last month from gang gunfire from BLACK MALES --a 5-year-old, a 3-year-old and a beautiful FIVE MONTH OLD BABY GIRL. No white cop involved, so no reason for anyone to utter a peep about it. So long as it's just black males killing our babies, no reason for a single black "leader", including your thoroughly uninterested president, to lose a minute's sleep over it.

    You're doing the right thing. Your child's safety comes first! I wish more people understood that.

  • SameoleJ

    "She was about that drug life." She was 17. That is not a cloudy judgment, that is typical of a young person to make a bad decision. Still does not mean her bad decision validates her son's demise. Truly at 26, she is still a little stupid, less than at 17, but not that much. Still her choice cannot be blamed for the death of her child. 1:41PM, almost out of here...I am done with this, but nice debate.

  • NeverSurprised

    Good for you. In July 2015, Allen McQueen, a gang member, was shot dead in the Bronx WHILE HOLDING HIS ONE-YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, in broad daylight, right across the street from a public playground. The shooting was, as they say, "gang related." The police say it was a miracle that the child was unharmed (well, physically, but imagine the horror of witnessing your father's murder while being held by him).

    We are dealing with a sub-culture of young black males who have descended to sub-human levels. It would be an insult to animals to call their behavior animalistic, since most creatures in the animal kingdom do not prey on their own packs.

  • Mel

    Yes I read about this and this story was the same week he told me about his issues around his way my thing is she been around there numerous times so they know what she looks like so imagine someone follow him to my house and they see him with her sometimes they might not even go after him at that moment they might wait till they see her with me and do some shat lord knows these Brooklyn skreets is brutal nope he ain't coming here

  • shaybytheway

    PREACH!!!!!!!!

    I was thinking the same..the father's bears responsibility too. Shame on him!

  • LordeAmbler

    Take a good look. This is what black men have to offer their people. Where is al sharpton, where is black lives matter. Black men the creator is handling you himself and black women we are losing our babies because of these fools. You destroy your people and my babies take the blame from the police and other negligent grown men for your negligence. God bless this child and his mother. I know my ancestors are bowing down at his feet in heaven for the fools they produced.

    I read articles about his family members Willie Flukey Stokes and Willie Wimp Stokes. Both were murdered due to drug and gang activity. Someone needs to break that family curse.

    What was an 9 year outside by himself? smh It's crazy. And the father probably knows who killed his son, but won't speak. He just as guilty as the murderers

  • 1/8

    Tell that to the young black males murdering each other in Chicago.

    We had another shooting today at a school. Two people shot, one in critical condition.

    So if he was 9. They were both around 16 when he was born.

    Highly unlikely.

    You are not alone. We don't hesitate to send "peacekeeping forces" to other countries to protect THEIR citizens, but unfortunately, this administration cares NOTHING about the black babies' bodies littering the streets of urban America.

  • NeverSurprised

    This subject is near and dear to my heart because I'm in the process of writing a book about black children/babies who have been caught in gang crossfire. Doing the research is so disturbing that every once in a while I have to stop and compose myself after having a good cry. Few people know how WIDESPREAD this problem is, because unfortunately, we have NO ONE in the public eye who cares enough to address this crisis. If only we had a HIGH-LEVEL, BLACK ELECTED OFFICIAL who cared about black children.

  • Queen B

    Too pu$$y to confront the dad so u kill an innocent little boy smh this mess right here is trifling and disheartening

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    lord shut yo mouf. They may not have the photos but both Stokes guys were buried in not so regular caskets. I was a kid living in Chicago when each was murdered. I remember the grand-daughter sporting a mink coat at 3 to the funeral. Sr Stokes was buried in a telephone booth like casket. Jr Stokes was buried in a casket, propped up on steering wheel with I think $1,000 bill tween each fanger. Money for sure. They were both gunned down.

  • Star

    True Punks.........Keep kids out of it Period.

  • SSSLOVELIVE

    I saw it. A hot mess but you could tell they were FULL of money. Glad you made it out safely.

  • FLUX MANE.

    Shooting kids mane? Come on.. I guess gangs don't live by codes anymore. Heartbreaking and completely shocking to hear about such a young flame snuffed out.. Its a shame we as a community are still pitted against one another in 2015! We just need a few people to STAND UP in our neighborhoods. Rehabilitate our ex cons. Educate our at risk youth. Band together. #JusticeforTyshawn.

  • okeydoke

    I grew up around these people in Chicago and if you go to the dad's Facebook, he is a thug wit the 9 year old in pics wit his hat cocked. First off ya name is Wooh Gotti? But you dont do gang activities? Nicca please. I cant understand how women allow these punks to be dads. Run from these guys because if u dont care about yourself then u sure dont care about anyone else. So glad I moved as a teen.

  • eljjai

    Where are the blacl live
    s matter people? Who could matter more than an innocent black baby? Where they at? Why aren''t they tearing up the street over this?
    Its okay when black men take the lives of black kids?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Me too. Two friends I went to elem school with did not. One was gunned down outside his house in Chicago and the other was gunned down a week after graduation when he visited SC (selling drugs).

  • Sincerity7

    This makes the story so much more sad. That child had nothing to do with anything his father was involved in.
