UPDATE: A 23-year-old man was arrested in Milwaukee and a 32-year-old man was arrested in Chicago as persons of interest in the shooting of Justin Evans.
Family members have identified the 6-year-old boy shot and killed near 23rd and Nash Saturday. Justin Evans was killed outside his grandma’s house around 6:00 PM Saturday evening. On Sunday the family came together to honor his memory and encourage an end to violence.
“I can’t take it. I watched my nephew take his last breaths. I was right there when he got shot. That’s not nothing you want to see. We had to sit there and watch him. Just laying on that porch. Just laying in his own blood. Just lying on that porch just looking at me like help and I couldn’t help him,” said Justin’s aunt Jasmine Jones.
Justin was shot just as he was saying goodbye to his mother before a fishing trip.
