Antonio Smith, 9, was fatally shot Wednesday night in the Greater Grand Crossing community. Reader Kina Ward posted this about him:
This is such a tragedy. Antonio Smith was a sweet young man with a great spirit. He always asked me if I needed help and especially with taking my garbage out. His demeanor was always pleasant. I’m just so sick and tired of hearing about all of this nonsense day end and day out. His character and what happened to him is just not lining up.
