Argument over video games may have led to teen’s death

A possible argument over video games may have led to the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy early Sunday in the South Side Bronzeville neighborhood.

Police have charged the cousin of the slain teen – a 13-year-old boy – with first-degree murder, police said. That teen has been sent to juvenile court for processing.

The shooting occurred at 5:50 a.m. in the 500 block of East 38th Place, police said. Raymond Galloway, of the 4300 block of South Champlain Avenue, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:32 a.m., authorities said.

It is unclear how the 13-year-old obtained the gun at this time.
