At least 16 more people died from violence last week in Chicago, including five on Sunday alone, but possibly the most shocking involved a social media dispute that got out of hand.
The victim, the daughter of a Chicago cop, had been feuding with another woman on social media, and that eventually led to a physical confrontation Friday night in the Morgan Park neighborhood.
But one of the women, who was the mother of the victim’s boyfriend’s child, did not let it go, according to Cook County prosecutors. She got into her SUV, pinned the woman against a tree, and then ran her over twice.
When it was over, 24-year-old Chynna Stapleton was charged with first-degree murder for the death of 18-year-old Tatyanna Lewis, who was struck by the vehicle just after 11 p.m. in the 11400 block of South May, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Lewis was the daughter of a Chicago Police officer.
