Boy, 16, shot dead after pal threw stone at a passing car – as mom says ‘a rock was worth my baby’s life’ – The SunMay 27, 2020
A BOY, 16, was shot dead after his pal threw a stone at a passing car – as his devastated mom said “a rock was worth my baby’s life”.
Sean Chinn Jr was gunned down outside a gas station in Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday night after going to meet friends there after work.
One of the teens hurled the missile at a vehicle as it drove by, Sean’s family said.
But the car turned around and a man in the back seat opened fire on the group.
Sean was killed and two of his pals were wounded.
The car then fled the scene.
Sean’s distraught mom Tifini Monegan told Fox10: ‘“He shot at all of them and killed my baby right here over a f***ing rock – a rock, a rock.
“A rock was worth my baby’s life, a rock.”
'WHERE'S MY MOM?'
She revealed her son’s last words were: “Where is my mom? Where is my mom?”
The grieving mother said she wasn’t able to see him before he died in hospital because of ongoing coronavirus restrictions.
Ms Monegan said she moved moved her family to Phoenix from Chicago just a year ago in a bid to escape the city’s notorious gun violence.
But her son was shot dead in the place he was meant to start a better life.
The teen’s dad Sean Chinn Sr added: “My son didn’t do nothing to nobody. He’s his own kid, he was just doing good.
“He’s an apple in his mother’s eye, he loved his brothers, he loved me.”
The tragic teen’s uncle also insisted his nephew did nothing wrong.
Lathan Monegan said: “He wasn’t doing anything wrong. These were tough guys and who wanted to be tough and they took out a 16-year-old boy.”
Cops are hunting the gunman but have not yet made any arrests.
They say the killer was traveling in a silver sedan with two other people, and have urged witnesses to come forward.
