The Chicago police are canvassing the city’s Southwest Side for video surveillance after a 15-year-ol boy was fatally shot while delivering newspapers with his stepfather.

Police spokesman Anthony guglielmi said Monday that detectives are also interviewing witnesses.

Researchers say they are trying to determine whether Sunday’s shooting was a case of mistaken identity, or possibly the result of a previous encounter between the shooter and the victim or his stepfather. The shooting occurred in an area known for gang violence.

The police says the victim, Brian Jasso, was shot in the head after someone pulled alongside the vehicle he was in with his stepfather.

Chicago Tribune publisher and editor, Bruce Dold, says the newspaper is “saddened and shocked by the news.”

The boy’s stepfather is an independent party that provides for the Tribune and the other newspapers.
