A dispute over shoes led to the fatal shooting of the grandson of Illinois U.S. Rep. Danny Davis, Chicago police said Saturday.

At least two attackers went to the home of 15-year-old Jovan Wilson in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago on Friday night and shot him in the head after an argument, police said.

This stems from a dispute over shoes, basketball shoes,police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

Guglielmi said Wilson knew his attackers and they may have been friends at some point. The shooting was not, as previously reported, a home invasion

At least the dispute was over something of consequence.

Very sad. Is Davis blaming the gun or the thugs who pulled the trigger?

To me it's sick that the 15YO victim is named in the MSM, but the thugs who did it are not.

That's really horrible. Unfortunately, it happens here, too. DPS banned all designer clothes and shoes in the late 80s/early 90s, but they can't control what happens in the hood when school is not in session.

A 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl were ordered held without bail Sunday after being charged with murder in the shooting death of Jovan Wilson, the grandson of U.S. Rep. Danny Davis.

Tariq M. Harris, 16, and Dijae T. Banks, 17, are charged as adults with first-degree murder in an attack that started as a fight over clothes and shoes, police and prosecutors said. The pair were taken into custody Saturday.

At the time of the shooting, Banks was on probation for a robbery conviction

Obviously it's the guns fault. A prospective brain surgeon/cancer researcher would never do this on his own.
