Hillcrest freshman slain after Homecoming game remembered

Good afternoon, Chicago.

Amanda Lenoir remembered her 14-year-old son, Marshawn Mitchell, as funny, smart and an overall good kid. Mitchell loved playing football and his dream was to play in the NFL.

Mitchell, a freshman at Hillcrest High School in Country Club Hills, was fatally shot Friday near the school after Hillcrest’s Homecoming game against Oak Forest High School.

“He went to the Hillcrest homecoming game and he never made it home,” Lenoir said. “He was my only child. I don’t know how I’m going to go on without him.”
