Antonio Johnson was on the front porch with his family when he was struck in the head by the bullet on Sunday.
As Chicago police search for the killers of a 15-year-old boy on the west side, his family sits at the bedside of his grandmother, who was given a new lease on life because of the shooting.
Antonio Johnson was killed in a flurry of bullets Sunday evening as he sat on the porch of his home in the 700 block of North Springfield. His mother was wounded in the drive-by attack.
Johnson had previously talked about his hope to offer a kidney to his maternal grandmother, who was, herself, a victim of gun violence 20 years ago.
“He said, 'Fine. It’s OK. It’s cool. I’ll give her one of mine,'' recalled the boy's grandfather, R.C. Wardlow.
And he did.
