Darius “DJ” Lane Jr. was 16 just for a week when he was shot dead, but his round face and height — around 5-foot-4 — made him look younger. He was born at Stroger Hospital and that was where his body was taken after he died March 28. Chicago police said someone got out of a silver four-door BMW and began firing at him just a block away from the boy’s grandmother’s house. DJ was hit in the upper body and neck. There were 23 9 mm shell casings found at the scene. His grandmother was with him, her first grandchild, as he died.
