The violence in Chicago's black neighborhoods is a vicious, never-ending cycle.
Late Friday night, Markell Stribling was shot several times in the chest on the 11700 block of South La Salle Street. When police arrived, Stribling was unresponsive.
He pronounced dead at 11:35 p.m.
A second male gunshot victim, who survived his injuries, was reportedly shot in the elbow.
Although Chicago Breaking News listed Stribling's age as 16, his Facebook page indicates he was born September 6, 1992, which means he was 19.
Stribling and the surviving victim were involved in a physical altercation with a third subject, when the third party pulled a gun and shot them.
Based on comments left on the decedent's social networking account, Stribling may have been involved in gang activity and his online friends seem to be plotting revenge.
"Damn Boi Boi!...We was jus talkin earlier today!!!..Dont ean trip!!!...U kno fam goin take care of it!!...R.I.P MARKELL," said one of the slain teen's friends.
Another Facebook buddy, who actually posted his phone number online, asked anyone who can identify the shooter, to call him.
