15-year-old Antwon Green shot to death during argument in Lawndale

Fifteen-year-old Antwon Green was shot to death Monday evening during an argument in the Southwest Side Lawndale neighborhood.

The boy was on the sidewalk at 7:49 p.m. in front of a home in the 1500 block of South Drake, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He got into an argument with a group of people, and during the encounter, someone pulled out a gun and shot him in the back, police said.

Green was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead about 30 minutes later, authorities said.

He lived in the Far South Side Pullman neighborhood, and would have been returning to classes starting Tuesday at Corliss High School.
