Teen fatally shot in drive-by related to rapper killed in 2012

A 16-year-old boy killed in a drive-by shooting in Rogers Park has connections to a local rapper that was killed in 2012.

It happened at about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday on the 7600 block of North Ashland Avenue.

Police say Kenos Glass was walking home when one or more person in a gray mini-van opened fire. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Police chased the van and eventually stopped it in the 1300 block of West Touhy.  At least two people are now being questioned.

Glass was cousins with Lil Jo Jo, a rapper who was gunned down on the South Side in 2012.

His family said Glass was a student at Senn High School and was an aspiring rapper.  “He was just going to school and trying to get a job,” said Glass’ girlfriend, Tori Flowers.

Several shootings in the Rogers Park neighborhood have killed two people and wounded nine others in the last three months.

        What ever happened to the police picking you up past curfew,when I was younger if you were caught out past curfew(which I never was),you would find a cop behind that knock at your door with your kid and a stern lecture for the parents,times sure has changed!!!!

    Like I posted before…other groups are behind the killing of these black kids. These idiots don't see they're being used like puppets. It's the modern day master/servant to control a specific group of the population.

      Name the groups!
      How about the victims "At Risk Behavior"? In Chicago, a sure way to get killed is to be a Rapper, be related to a Rapper or a friend of a Rapper.

      Alan, you have an interesting theory; I'd like to know how you believe it works. Please explain how "other groups" arrange to have "these black kids" out walking the streets on a school night to enable the "other groups" to murder them in order to "control a specific group of the population."

      The parent(s) of this boy CONTROLLED what time that child was allowed outside the home. Who ALLOWED him out after the 10pm curfew? At 2:40AM?
      The family had CONTROL of their own child, so maybe we should really be looking at them instead of playing with your "other groups" tinfoil hat conspiracies, Alan.

    Why does it matter that she was related to a black rapper? The story headline should say related to Jessie Jackson also just because she's black, she's also related to Obama.

    Correction! Keno was not cousins with Joseph Coleman a.k.a. Lil JoJo he was cousins with Joseph Brewer a.k.a. JoJo so this information is false. And how disrespectful is that to say too bad? like really? Smh im not even gon argue with ignorant people!

    I extend my condolences to the family of this young man that loss his life.True , maybe he shouldn't have been out at pass 2 in the morning but this doesn't excuse whoever killed him.I look forward to the day when such acts will be gone by means of God's government – Psalms 37:10,11.

    Clearly you people saying about him running around at 2:30am on a school night know nothing anyway, because if you did, instead of saying things like that, you’d know that CPS schools are on spring break right now. It’s absolutely horrible that you are saying that he shouldn’t be out at that time, instead of saying how sorry it is to see a young life lost too soon. It is the ones that killed him that are responsible for this. Rest in Peace, Keno.

    Good parents care enough to teach children to stay off the streets at 2:40 am. Good parents know it is both illegal AND stupid for children to be out at that hour, curfew in Chicago is 10PM-6AM…
    Even in the Summer when there is NO school, curfew is still 11PM-6AM.
    The family should have taken that death in 2012 as a serious warning about that type of lifestyle. He might still be alive if they had bothered to rein in their child's social behavior.
    Time after time it happens, and they do not learn…Too busy keepin' it real!
