One of the most shocking homicides in Chicago occurred in late April, 14 year-old Endia Martin, student at Tilden High School was shot to death by another teen. The whole incident, the result of a fight, was recorded via cell phone video by one of the witnesses. While a few people have already been charged in connection of the murder, it is the 14 year-old who actually pulled the trigger that could face trial as an adult after being charged with first-degree murder in juvenile court.

On Friday, prosecutors stated that they want to try the teen as an adult in the city’s Back of the Yards community homicide. It is not clear whether or not the feud happened because of a Facebook argument over a boy, but it is great the Endia’s family can rest better after recent developments.

The teen female who allegedly shot Endia could face up to 80 years in prison if she is tried and convicted as an adult. On the other hand, if she remains at juvenile court, she will possibly be released from custody when she turns 21. Fighting over a boy isn’t worth ending a life, nobody wins in that situation. What do you think?
