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.
