CHICAGO –A teenage boy was shot and killed while recording a fight on his cell phone.

Chicago Police say Anthony Diaz, 13, was shot multiple times just after 10:30 p.m. Sunday in the Belmont Central neighborhood.

Diaz’ stepfather, Ralph Otero, says the teen snuck out of the house with his sisters, ages 15 and 17, because they wanted to confront someone about a post on Facebook.

Otero says five minutes later Diaz was shot.

Police say someone shot him in the side and at least one of the bullets exited through his chest.

Officers found four shell casings at the scene.

No arrests have been made.

Otero says his stepson was not a member of a gang and was a good kid who loved basketball.
