Chicago police said the teen was in the 3300-block of South Prairie around 3:15 p.m. when he was approached by someone who then pulled out a gun and opened fire.
The teen was struck in the head and taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in critical condition, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.
Two people were taken into custody shortly after 5 p.m. on 63rd Street near State Street during a traffic stop, Chicago police said. They are being questioned.
The victim was identified as Michael Brown. It was likely he was walking home from school at the time of the shooting.
A neighbor, who was working from home at the time, said he heard at least half a dozen gunshots.
Police have not announced any further details about the two men taken in for questioning, only saying they believe they are connected to the teen’s shooting.
