Cousin: Man slain in mass shooting died ‘protecting the kids’ – Chicago Sun

The latest mass shooting in the city happened late Tuesday in Bronzeville just two blocks or so from what one would think to be a safe zone: the Chicago Police Department Headquarters at 3510 S. Michigan Ave.

While Alfred Mitchell Jr. and others were outside barbecuing shortly after 10:30 p.m., a group of men walked up and fired shots from the corner of East 37th Place near South Michigan Avenue.

Mitchell, 28, was killed. Six others, ranging in age from 46 to 21, were wounded.

“People were just outside kicking it,” said Mitchell’s cousin, who asked to remain anonymous. “He was just out here barbecuing when it happened.”

Mitchell’s cousin described Mitchell as a “cool” person who shielded children attending the barbecue from the hail of bullets.
