Mark Watts, shot, killed on Englewood porch

Written By Chicago News Report on Thursday, January 5, 2012 | 1/05/2012 08:09:00 PM


Back in April of 2011, a then 14-year-old Mark Watts was photographed standing over someone's grave making (possibly) gang-related hand gestures. Less than a year later, Watts is just as dead as the person whose grave he once visited.

On January 4, 2012, around 8:30 p.m., 15-year-old Mark Watts, who also went by the nickname Shawty Flin Boy Watts, was gunned down on his cousin's South Side porch on the 5700 block of South Laflin Street, in Chicago's disgustingly violent and degenerative Englewood neighborhood.

Apparently, Watts lived in Riverdale, Illinois, but was in Chicago visiting his friends and family at the time of his murder.

Latrice Bamgbaiye, Watts' caregiver, allegedly told the Chicago Tribune that she was baffled by Watts' death.

Yet, in the same breath, Bamgbaiye reportedly said she knew or had a reasonable suspicion that Watts' friends were “connected to area gangs”.

So, as a precautionary measure, Bamgbaiye allowed Watts to visit his old gang-infested neighborhood when school was out and on weekends.

After all, no one gets shot in Englewood when school is out and everyone knows Saturdays and Sundays are off limits to gun-violence.

Here are a few charming photos from the decedent’s Facebook profile:

What's in that bottle? Kool-Aid?
