A teenager was shot to death Thursday afternoon near the Morse Red Line station, police said. No one is in custody.

The victim has been identified by a source as Quintin Brown, also known as “Lil DBoi.”

Police said in a statement that a 17-year-old boy was standing on the sidewalk in the 6900 block of North Glenwood when a gunman approached him and fired shots at 2:15 p.m.

Brown, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen, was pronounced dead at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston.

A source said Brown was a member of PBG, a set of the Gangster Disciples street gang.

Brown said in a Facebook post early Thursday that he had two court appearances scheduled for later in the day.

“I’m Goin down I feel it but it is what it is,” Brown wrote.

The details of charges against Brown were not available because he was a juvenile.

His final Facebook entry, posted at 8:59 a.m. today, said simply, “SnitchK,” which means “snitch killer.” Brown’s profile on the social media page said he worked as a lifeguard for the Chicago Park District.

Police tonight could offer no description of his killer.
