Ivan Alanis: Alleged photo of 13-year-old boy shot in possibly gang-related shooting at Uptown pizza place

Written By Chicago News Report on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 | 5/29/2012 07:47:00 PM

When 13-year-old Ivan Alanis, of the 7400 block of North Western Avenue, went to an Uptown pizza place for a bite to eat, he probably had no idea it would be his last meal.

Moments after the fatal shooting, Chicago News Report broke the news that someone was shot near Lori's Pizzeria, 5153 North Broadway, around 2:19 a.m.

At the time, we were under the impression the shooting occurred outside the North Side restaurant... updated information from the Chicago Tribune states Alanis was shot inside the pizzeria.

"The boy was inside with his adult sister and her friend when a gunman standing on the sidewalk fired shots through the doorway," said the Tribune. 

The 13-year-old boy was shot in the face and rushed to Illinois Masonic Hospital, where he later died. 

According to Chicago Police Superintendent, Garry McCarthy, Alanis had gang ties and his shooting was probably gang-related.

An unconfirmed, but reliable source, sent Chicago News Report this alleged photo of the victim throwing up gang signs. 

However, because this information has not been confirmed, Chicago News Report makes no claim that this photo actually depicts Ivan Alanis.
