On A Friday Afternoon, Two Teenagers Were Shot And Killed Outside Benito Juarez High School, And Two Others Were Injured
Friday afternoon, outside Benito Juarez High School in Pilsen, four teenagers were shot; two of them died.
As students were leaving 2150 S. Laflin St. Elementary School at 2:45 p.m., shots were fired in the area. According to the Fire Department, four students, three boys, and one girl were taken to Stroger Hospital after being hit outside of the school.
Two boys, ages 14 and 15, were fatally shot in the head, according to the police. According to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, the boy’s name was Brandon Perez, and he was 15 years old.
Authorities reported that two 15-year-olds were injured; a boy was struck in the thigh and shoulder, and a girl was grazed in the thigh. According to the police, their condition in the hospital was stable.
According to Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford, who spoke with the Tribune, all four are Juarez students. At least three shootings have occurred this school year at dismissal time at Chicago public high schools.
During the first week of school in August, four students were shot outside Schurz High School in Old Irving Park. A 15-year-old student was shot and killed on the Near West Side earlier this month, outside Michele Clark Magnet High School. There was no other information available at the time of the shooting’s reporting.
Supt. David Brown, when asked about the shootings that have occurred outside schools during dismissal, said that police rely on their community sources about potential conflicts brewing in the area and work closely with CPS to de-escalate issues within school communities in order to prevent gun violence.
What happens is what gets reported, but obviously things that could have been avoided never make the news, Brown said. “These are robust communities with robust families who have collaborated with community stakeholders to make sure police have the resources they need to make the neighborhood safer from violence.”
