WHAT??? 6-Year-Old Gunman Robbing People On Near South Side, Cops Say


It’s happening well out of our usual coverage area, but the latest community alert from Chicago police is jaw-dropping.

Detectives are warning Near South Side residents of a robbery crew that includes a 6- to 8-year-old boy who’s armed with a silver handgun.

The offenders struck at least 11 times during June, most recently on June 28th, according to the alert that came out on Saturday.

Each time, between three and nine robbers have approached victims and either demanded valuables or taken property by force before running away.

Robberies have been reported on sidewalks, in parking lots, and in an apartment building hallway, cops said.

Around 8 p.m. on June 28, a group of offenders included the young boy who police said “displayed a silver handgun and demanded money” in the first block of East 29th Street in the Douglas neighborhood.

The alert describes the offenders only as black males between 6- and 20-years-old.

  1. Wow! What's next, a 3 year old doing drive-by's in his stroller while sucking on a pacifier and holding an AK???? 6 & 8 yr olds don't do this on their own. If and when caught, parents MUST be held responsible for their actions. Parents or older siblings definitely had a part to play to here with major influence!!

  3. I have never been a victim of a robbery nor had a weapon pointed to me, I can't imagine what people go through, but I will tell you this, if I have a six year old kid robbing me I am not letting this little punk get away with it so easily, there is something called self defense and at that age they need to learn what that means

    1. He's not "getting away with it so easily". What does that mean exactly when he's got a handgun pointing at you? What is your definition of self defense mean when a punk kid has a gun pointing it at you and his finger is on the trigger?

    2. True. Unless he's got 8 other teenagers in his crew with him.

  6. This is the most heartbreaking story. As a father I just cant imagine how a 6y.o. Boy would even have a clue about doing something like this. How is that even possible ? I hope this kid and especially the older kids who put him up to this stuff get caught. Firing squad for the older kids would be just punishment. There is norehabilitating anyone who could put a child up to armed robbery.

    1. Any child this age capable of "being put up" to armed robbery is inherently "nonrehabilitatible".

  7. I can't imagine many more dangerous situations than having a 6 year old pointing a gun at you. They would have zero understanding of the implications of pulling the trigger and the value of life.

  8. Oh! Ease up...he was probably 9 and just short for his age.

  9. Maybe robbery is one of the new programs at the nearby Dunbar Career Vocational Academy?

  10. We hear a lot of complaints from social activists that the city, state, and federal governments aren't shoveling enough money into the south and west side communities, but I'm sorry, if a parent can't raise your kid to age 10 without them pulling a gun on someone and robbing them, the fault is completely with the parent. There is only so much other peoples' money can do to make up for horrible parenting.
