Police: Chicago girl shot over boy

A 14-year-old Chicago girl shot to death another 14-year-old girl because of an argument over a boy, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Tuesday as murder charges were filed. The gun used to kill Endia Martin had been stolen from a car on April 14, McCarthy said, adding that two other people, including a 24-year-old uncle of the suspect, face charges. He did not elaborate. Endia was walking home from Tilden Career Community Academy, where she was a freshman, when another girl approached and opened fire at a group of girls Monday, police said.
