Tragedy struck the family of Illinois Rep Danny Davis, who represents the 7th Congressional District of Illinois. Two teenagers broke into the home of Davis’s grandson, 15 year-old Jovan Wilson. A subsequent argument over a pair of kicks ended with Wilson being gunned down.
Rep. Davis released this statement:
Thanks to all that have contacted my family and staff. Please note the following and I appreciate your prayers during this difficult time. pic.twitter.com/LfVXCqRliy
