A high school sophomore gunned down outside a church was among more than two dozen people hurt in weekend gun violence in Chicago.
Michael Flournoy, 16, was fatally shot in the head just before 8 p.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of East 93rd Street in the city’s Burnside neighborhood, according to the Chicago Tribune. The shooting took place outside St. Anthony’s Church. The teen had reportedly left a relative’s home to buy a bag of chips and got into an argument with someone inside a car he encountered along the way.
Flournoy was a popular student at Simeon Career Academy, where he was a member of both the football and wrestling teams. He had planned to go to college, dreamed of becoming an architect and was looking forward to a possible summer job at Navy Pier, his grandfather told the Chicago Sun-Times.
