Son in custody after father stabbed to death

An early morning domestic argument between a father and son led to the father’s stabbing death on the city’s southwest side.

Police say 49-year-old Kenneth Johnson was stabbed multiple times inside his home near 114th St and Rockwell.

He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he was pronounced dead.

Officers took the man’s 24-year-old son into custody in connection with the homicide, but no charges were filed as of late this afternoon.

The son also suffered some injuries and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

    Every1 that live on the southside or westside of Chicago are not criminals. The area where the incident took place is a very nice middle class area. Area is mixed&lot of CPD live in that area. If it was your family or neighbor I’m sure u would think differently. We all need to care or criminals will take over all areas. Southside is huge so stop assuming all of southside is gutter filled ghetto where all blacks reside or white trailer trash. There are many areas on southside where many of you judgmental white folks can’t afford. There are areas where your kind live as well in trailer parks filled with meth labs or white whores that I wouldn’t interact with, i’m no racist but ppl stop making comments if u really don’t know true info. No I’m not black, I’m simply well-rounded white individual that associate with upscale ppl of all races.

    I think the reason that I dont care and why is this news is the fact that it happens every damn day. Its sad and it shouldnt happen but come one if you live in this city and read this everyday. You will become jaded. It wasnt about black or white. Rich or poor why I dont care. Its just beating a dead horse. Chicago has horrible crime on the southside. Until people stop shooting and stabbing each other and just getting along for a better future. Nothing is going to change. Same thing different day.
