The Chicago Police Department unveiled “Honorary Blair DeLane Holt Way” just outside Percy L. Julian High School on the South Side to mark the 10-year anniversary of the death of 16-year-old Blair Holt, who was murdered on May 10, 2007, while riding a Chicago Transit Authority bus home from school.

The Julian honor roll student was fatally shot after trying to protect a female student from being shot. Neither Holt nor the female friend was the intended target, according to Chicago police. Police said the shooting was gang-related, but Holt and the female he protected were not in a gang.
