Terrance Wright, a young gay man who recently switched high schools to evade bullies, was killed in an attempted robbery Oct. 19, according to a Chicago Tribune report.

Wright, identified by police as an 18-year-old without gang affiliation, was shot on the 9900 block of S. Yates Blvd. around 3:40 p.m., said police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak.

According to Kubiak, five offenders approached the victim and began to rummage through his pockets and backpack.

"He began to struggle with the offender in an attempt to escape," said Kubiak.

During the struggle, the offender shot Wright in the chest.

He was transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he died as a result of the injury, said Kubiak.

Police are investigating. No one is in custody.

Anyone wishing to contribute to a remembrance of Wright should contact Windy City Times at editor@windycitymediagroup.com .
