CHICAGO — Congressman Danny Davis will deliver the eulogy at his grandson’s funeral today.

15-year-old Javon Wilson was shot and killed last week, when two teens broke into his home and got into a fight with his brother over gym shoes.

Rep. Davis said he wonders if he’ll be able to find the right words to address young people, and admitted he was struggling to find reasons for an optimistic message.

The funeral starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday at Carey Tercentenary AME Church, located at 1448 S. Homan Avenue in Chicago.

The two teens charged with Wilson’s murder, are being held without bail.
