18 yr old Treja Kelley was shot 17 times on her way home from work on Sunday in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. Chicago police say that a man emerged from an alley and a brief argument took place and Kelley was murdered. Authorities say that she was a witness in a recent murder trial of her cousin. Her family began to fear for her safety after she testified. “We were doing what we could to transport her every place she went,” her Grandmother said. “Normally [Kelley] would take an Uber home from work, but I don’t know why she didn’t.”
Treja was 3 months pregnant. She was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. No arrest have been made.
