CHICAGO (WLS) --"Tyshawn was not in the wrong place. The murderer, the executioner, the assassin - he was in the wrong place," Father Michael Pfleger said Tuesday at the funeral for Tyshawn Lee. The 9-year-old boy was lured into an alley and executed by gang members eight days ago, Chicago police said.

"Tyshawn was on his way to play basketball at the park down the street from his grandmother's house. Our children have a right to walk our streets. Our children have a right to play in the park. Our children have a right to sit on their porch. Our children have a right expect to be safe wherever they are in the city of Chicago. Our children deserve that," Father Pfleger said. "Tyshawn was doing what every child has a right to do: be a child."....
