Antwon Green, 15, was looking forward to seeing his friends as he started another year at Corliss High School on the Far South Side.

“He was excited about it,” his father Michael Jones said, struggling for words. “But I don’t know, he … I can’t talk about it.”

The night before classes were to begin, Antwon was standing in front of a West Side home in the 1500 block of South Drake Avenue in the Lawndale neighborhood when he began arguing with some men around 7:50 p.m. Monday, police said. One of them opened fire and Antwon was shot in the back.

The teen died about 30 minutes later at Stroger Hospital, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
