Father of murdered 9-year-old Chicago boy charged with triple shooting

- The father of a 9-year-old Chicago boy who was murdered execution-style this past November was accused Sunday of shooting three people last week on the city's South Side.

Pierre Stokes, 25, was charged with three counts of aggravated battery with a firearm and one count of unlawful use of weapon by a felon, the Cook County state's attorney's office announced.

Stokes was arrested Friday in the March 8 shooting, in which a 30-year-old was injured in the right arm and a 31-year-old man was shot in the left arm, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. A 29-year-old woman was grazed in the face.

The alleged shooting occurred the same day that authorities announced charges against 22-year-old Dwright Boone-Doty in the Nov. 2 killing of Stokes' son, Tyshawn Lee.

Boone-Doty is accused of luring Tyshawn and shooting him in the head, allegedly in retaliation for Stokes' ties to a gang faction Boone-Doty blamed for an earlier murder.
