CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Chicago man has been charged after police said he fatally shot two teens in the South Shore neighborhood after they asked how tall he was.

Police said Laroy Battle, 19, opened fire on two teens in an alley in the 7900-block of South Luella Avenue around 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 20.

According to Deputy Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan, the shooting took place after the two teens and a friend had a brief encounter with Battle, whom they did not know, in a corner store.

WATCH: CPD announces charges in teens' double murder

Chicago police announced charges in the fatal shootings of two teens who went to buy candy in the South Shore neighborhood.

"The victims commented, because, since Battle is quite tall, and they asked him how tall he was and you know, hoped to be that tall someday," Deenihan said. "And unfortunately, obviously we'll never see the full growth of these poor children."

As the three teens walked home, two of them were shot multiple times in the alley. Police said they recovered nine shell casings from the scene.

Jasean Francis, 17, was shot in the back, chest and left hand and taken to University of Chicago Hospital, where he died. Charles Riley, 16, was shot in the back and left leg and was taken to University of Chicago Hospital, where he also died.

Police said the two boys had asked their mothers for the OK to go down the block and buy candy.
"He was a kid," said Francis' aunt Latonya Pettit. "Liked video games, snacks. That was his thing. He would walk into this hospital gift shop daily and purchase snacks."

"He was nice to seniors on the block," said his aunt Keena Hoyle. "The nurses looked forward to him coming over there daily. They brought over to the family roses. They watched him grow up as a child."

Battle is charged with two counts of first degree murder. Police said he had a previous conviction for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, for which he received probation.

Battle was denied bond Friday.

Police thanked the community for their help in providing surveillance video of the suspect and identifying him.


A vigil was held Friday for two teens killed in an alley in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood.

A prayer vigil was held Friday night near the scene of the shooting.

sounds like the writer told some bs story and wrote a Disney version of the encounter the first clues is the bs story about asking permission to buy candy at their age I didn't even do that as a kid.

the more realistic story is they probably teased the 6'4" lurch and given that they were in the ghetto Chicago's south shore they got shot for being dicks.

Tragic.

again it comes down to education.

i mean look at the ones ‘helping’. Their t shirts say.

changing our community one prayer at a time.

eh?

that isn’t going to change fuck. God isn’t going to help you. You need social programs. You need money. Support. Proper funding.

you need to give people purpose, education, a stake in the country they live in.

not a gun and no mental health facilities.

i hope the scum bag that was lost and killed the innocents gets a hole in the ground to reflect till he needs help eating.

if this happened in the UK the area would be flooded with help..

in the states it’s just a meme for maga.

if this happened in the U.K the 6'4" lurch would have stabbed them to death using a sharpened assault spoon or spork. watch an episode of top boy.

we all carry sharpened spoons that’s true.

Top boy is as real as my sharpened spoon.

Here’s a story from today.

I was working in London Bridge today. There were some annoying yoots riding their oversize tired bikes down the road.

no one in their cars said anything for fear of getting their car dented . I walked in front of them. They avoided me.they didn’t want to spill.

by The time I came back from lunch they arrested 4 of them. Just for being a nuisance.

they won’t get done. Just taken home. If the parents they deliver them too don’t give a shit. Then they are marked.
I can promise you none of them will shoot anyone.

one might try and stab someone in about 4 years.

but in a pack of 16 none will die on the streets. Most will go to college and roll the dice at getting a decent job.

most won’t. But 5 or 6 will.

its not urban warfare here.

It's amazing how this news story doesn't feature a headline like "Black Man Shoots and Kills Innocent Unarmed Black Teens" We all know what it would look like if the shooter was white.

Beleive it or not, when you rebuild a community you don't seek out the bad actors and hand them bags full of money.
Look at the brain on u...no shit sherlock...Chicago is a rich city they dont invest in those areas because it would be pissing away good money

Without culture change NOTHING will change

Uh ya they literally call it chiraq for a reason
Yes, because it's a crime ridden shithole. One where cops don't bother going, and everyone pretends it's not there. They all invest their time and money in the section that's already nice because it's reinvensting in shit they've already investing in, rather than investing on poor people where you might not see a big at return on your investment.

It's a fixable problem, but requires money, political will, and most importantly the willingness for people to sacrifice not knowing what will come of it.

This is typical neoliberal nonsense that is oblivious to human nature

There are poor asians that come here work hard and get ahead because of culture not muh systemic racism or lack of funds

You should probably spend like 5 minutes reading about what spawns culture among different socioeconomic groups before you start regurgitating a bunch of false equivalences.

Bullshit story. A couple of kids in Chicago wouldn't bat an eye at someone 6-4. Get up to at least 6-8 before they start asking how tall he is. They were talking shit and got wrecked. The shooter probably actually saved a few lives in the long run.
