Two Chicago teenagers were shot to death Saturday over a dispute on Facebook, the mother of one of the victims said Saturday night.

Sixteen-year-old Jordan Means and 18-year-old Anthony Bankhead were found dead just after 10:30 a.m. Saturday in an apartment in the 8200 block of South Houston Avenue on the South Side, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Both Means and Banks, who lived at the home, were dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Means’ mother, Camille Cochran, said the shooter and her son had exchanged words on Facebook.

“An argument led to this, that’s crazy,” said Cochran, 42. “Now, I don’t have my son no more.”

Police did not confirm the details provided by Cochran.

She said Means was her baby — the youngest of her three kids. He was a sophomore at Bowen High School, liked to play basketball and was a ladies man, she said.

“Nobody deserves to get killed like that,” said Magen Willis, 24. “Not at 16.”

Means lived less than a block from Bankhead’s South Chicago neighborhood basement apartment where the shooting happened. Friends gathered there Saturday night. Candles illuminated pools of blood left by the shooting.

Means and his friend were among five people shot to death across the city since Friday evening. Another 16 have been wounded.
