Antwone, who lived in the same block, was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

Officers took one person into custody after the shooting, police said.

Late Wednesday, at least eight people were killed and 12 wounded in Chicago shootings throughout the day.
