Grandson of US Rep. Davis victim of Chicago gun violence

CHICAGO (AP) — The grandson of Illinois U.S. Rep. Danny Davis has died after being shot and killed in a home invasion in Chicago.

Chicago Police spokeswoman Officer Michelle Tannehill told the Chicago Tribune ( ) that 15-year-old Jovan Wilson died Friday night at the scene in the Englewood neighborhood on the city's South Side.

Davis said in a statement that a 17-year-old girl and 15-year-old boy forced their way into the home and after an argument the 15-year-old shot Wilson in the head. Davis said Wilson's mother was not home, but Wilson's uncle and three siblings were.

The Democrat also questioned why the shooter had a gun and how it could have been prevented.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the newspaper that police have a "good lead" but no one was arrested.
