A 22-year-old man was charged with murder in the execution-style shooting of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee in a South Side alley last November and a 19-year-old woman killed weeks earlier in the same ongoing South Side gang conflict.
Dwright Boone-Doty was charged with both murders Monday night. He was already in custody on unrelated gun charges, according to authorities. He is a reputed member of a faction of the Black P Stones gang, law enforcement sources said.
Sally Daly, the spokeswoman for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, confirmed the charges Monday night.
Police have said that Tyshawn was targeted in early November because of his father’s gang ties and a recent series of shootings between two rival gangs in the Auburn Gresham community. The charges against the man will be discussed at a news conference Tuesday, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.
