Anthony Diaz, 13 was killed during a gang fight on Chicago’s Northwest Side Sunday night. The fight, which started on Facebook, was between his sisters and a rival gang. When Jennifer Sosa went to finish a fight that began on Facebook, she probably didn’t expect her 13-year-old brother Anthony Diaz wind up dead as a result. Sosa, 17, and her sister, 15, were in a Facebook taunting match with rival gang members and decided to settle it in person. The sisters snuck out of their house with one of their boyfriends and Diaz to brawl with girls from the opposing gang. Sosa later told WLS news, an ABC affiliate in Chicago, that they fought the girls while Diaz recorded the fight on his cell phone. Sosa said that Diaz and his sisters were walking away, members from the rival gang jumped them. During this second scuffle, one of the rival gang members fired a handgun and struck Diaz in the chest. “She was dissing our gang. We came, we fought. They just got out of hand. They jumped all of us and they ended up shooting my brother,” Sosa told reporters. The 13-year-old was was taken to the hospital but later succumbed to his injuries. Police recovered Diaz’s phone which contains images from the fight, but they’ve not yet taken anyone into custody.
