A Chicago man that admitted to police he killed an 8-year-old jumping rope expressed his nonchalance for the murder to police saying,
“We didn’t care. We let the whole .40 clip go.”
17-year-old Steshawn Brisco is the first suspect arrested in connection with the murder of Tanaja Stokes who was jumping rope outside of her Chicago home when men rode by on bicycles and shot her and her cousin 7-year-old Ariana Jones in the head aiming for a group of nearby males.
Jones is still hospitalized from her injuries while Stokes was killed instantly.

Police are still searching for Brisco’s accomplice who they believe is a minor well known in the community.
They’ve asked members of the neighborhood around 107th and Indiana for help, handing out fliers asking for assistance in capturing the second suspect.
Brisco faces charges of first degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm and has been denied bond.
Anyone with information on the shooting is encouraged to call 312-747-8272 to help.
