Target: Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department Garry F. McCarthy
Goal: Identify the person that shot and killed nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee and bring them to justice.
Police have yet to discover whether or not nine-year-old Tyshawn was intentionally targeted as a shooting victim, or if he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time during an unrelated altercation. He was in an alley of the Gresham neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois when investigators say an argument broke out before the boy was shot multiple times in the upper body. He died in the street soon after the incident.
Investigators have yet to even discern a motive for this devastating crime, but claim they are working non-stop to find more information. Saddened and outraged residents of the area have come together to receive justice for Tyshawn’s senseless and violent death, handing out fliers in search of information about the boy’s killer that promised a reward and donating over $20,000 to that reward so far. Support the neighbors and loved ones of this dead boy by urging the Chicago police to do everything they can to track down and apprehend Tyshawn’s murderer.
Dear Superintendent Garry McCarthy,
A tragic and disturbing incident occurred in the Gresham neighborhood recently. 9 year old Tyshawn Lee was shot and killed while walking down an alley near his home where an argument broke out. It is still unclear whether or not the boy was intentionally targeted or was an accidental victim, receiving multiple gun shot wounds to his upper body before dying there in the street. His distraught mother has made a public statement asking to end gun violence and openly grieving over the loss of her only son. The equally saddened and outraged community has since come together to seek justice for the tragic death of this little boy.
Tyshawn’s killer has still not been identified. Concerned residents of the area have passed out fliers seeking information on the suspect and communally donated to a reward for that information that has now amounted over $20,000. Investigators are still not even sure of the motive for the attack, or whether Tyshawn was intentionally targeted by the shooter or just an unfortunate bystander. More information still needs to be revealed to authorities in order for Tyshawn’s family and loved ones to receive final and complete justice. Please do everything in your power to make sure that Tyshawn’s killer is brought to justice.
[Your Name Here]
