A Chicago man has been charged with first-degree murder in the suspected gang-related shooting of nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee, The New York Daily News reports.
The announcement was made on Twitter early Friday by Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. A press conference is expected to reveal more details behind Corey Morgan’s charges.
Tyshawn was lured into an alleyway earlier this month and shot execution-style in the head and back, police said.

Last week, Morgan, 27, was arrested on gun charges and considered a person of interest in the shooting.
From the NY Daily News:
Police first questioned Morgan two days after the fourth grader’s Nov. 2 death, the Chicago Tribune reported, but he was released without charges.
