GUN VIOLENCE: Hakeem Walton, 20, died after being shot early Saturday morning while he rode in a car in the 2700 block of East 84th Street in a South Chicago neighborhood. According to the Chicago Tribune, Hakeem Walton, who lived in Hammond, Ind., was struck in the head when a bullet shattered the back window. He was pronounced dead Saturday evening after being transferred from Advocate Trinity Hospital to Advocate Christ Medical Center, the newspaper reports.
