Family members and friends lament the murder of Glenbrook North High School football star Miles Thompson who was shot down during a visit with his father in Chicago.
Thompson, 18, had driven from the north suburban town to Chicago’s violent Austin neighborhood to visit with his father on Wednesday. But the next morning he was found shot dead in an alley behind his father’s home, the Chicago Police said, according to the Daily Herald.
A surveillance video reportedly shows a group of three young men emerging from a car in the alley. One of the men then pulls a gun and shoots Thompson down. The teen was hit one time in the chest. The three attackers then simply drove off. Thompson’s car and all his personal belongings were still on the scene when his body was found.
Friends, fellow students, and family members were shocked by the death
