Columbia College student shot and killed
A Chicago teen was shot and killed last night in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
19-year-old Kevin Ambrose had just finished his first year at Columbia College.
Last night he was walking to 47th St Green Line station from his home nearby to meet up with a friend so that friend wouldn’t have to walk alone. Ambrose never got there.
Police say a gunman in a light colored sedan opened fired killing him.
His mother says she has no idea why he was targeted, because he wasn’t in a gang and had a bright future.
Tonight at Harold Washington Library, more than a hundred friends and students gathered to remember Kevin Ambrose. The weekly poetry slam called Lyricist Loft was dedicated to him.
