Young Man Shot to Death by Teens

November 7th, 2012 at 5:38 pm

An attempted robbery led to the death of a high school student in the Southeast Side’s Jeffery Manor neighborhood on October 20. Terrance Wright, a senior at Banner Academy South High School, was shot and killed by a group of robbers as he was leaving school, according to Chicago Police.

The 18-year-old Wright was fighting the robbers when one of them shot him in the chest. The young man was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where it was confirmed that he died of a gunshot wound to the chest. His 19th birthday was only a week away. Wright had been bullied at his former school because he was gay. He transferred to Banner last year where he quickly made new friends, said Kathy Jackson, the victim’s aunt. “He had made a big turnaround from the old school to this one,” Jackson said. “And now this happened.”

The assailant was identified as a 14-year-old boy, authorities said. The boy was arrested on the following day of the incident with the help of his mother. He has been charged as a juvenile for the murder of Terrance Wright and will later appear in Juvenile Court. The charges against him are very serious and the penalties could be harsh. Although nothing can unmake the unfortunate series of events, the boy can still benefit from the help of a highly experienced lawyer. For example, his sentence can be reduced

If you or a loved one has been charged with a felony, you need to contact a criminal defense attorney at once. Protect your child’s rights and contact a skilled juvenile crime attorney in Cook County.
