Basketball was a way of life for Darius Brown, 13 and determined that one day he would play in the pros.
"He watched it, he played it. All day," said his mother, Stephanie Brown.
Darius was playing at Metcalfe Park in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when a shot from a passing car hit him in the neck. He died hours later as family, friends and coaches held a vigil at Comer Children's Hospital.

Very sad. These SOB's responsible need to be put down like the dogs they are.
