Jeremy Brooks, 17

The shooting that killed Jeremy Brooks happened about 2:15 p.m. on September 2nd in an alley at 743 East 78th Street in the Chatham neighborhood on Chicago's South Side. He shot several times by one of two people who confronted him. After he was shot, he staggered behind a church near 78th and Cottage Grove and was taken to Jackson Park Hospital by ambulance. Police turned out in force in the neighborhood, with a swarm of officers in the area with M4 rifles, because Jeremy was the younger brother of a top member of the Gangster Disciples and police feared a retaliation shooting.
