Arrest made in murder of Tyshawn Lee.

Cops have been hunting for Tyshawn Lee’s killer since his body was found in an alley close to his grandma’s house, next to his beloved basketball earlier thios month.CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Police say they have a person of interest in custody in the fatal shooting earlier this month of a 9-year-old boy on the city’s South Side.

About 4 p.m. on Nov. 2, Tyshawn was lured into an alley in the 8000 block of South Damen and executed in retaliation against the boy’s father, authorities say. Tyshawn’s Nov. 2 death stemmed from a gang rivalry between the Killa Ward faction of the Gangster Disciples and the Terror Dome faction of the Black P Stones, police previously said.

Officer Jason Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder Tuesday, just hours before the release of horrific dash-cam video showing the officer shooting Laquan McDonald 16 times. Tyshawn, who was just 83 pounds and 56 inches tall, wore black jeans, plaid boxers, an orange Polo shirt and a dark jacket with yellow lining on his final day of life.
