A teenager shot to death as he walked along a North Side Chicago street was identified Friday as a member of the Jesse White Tumbling Team.  16-year-old Devonshay Lofton was shot by a gunman on a bicycle late Thursday, according to Chicago police. He later died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Lofton, a Lincoln Park High School student, had been a member of well-known tumbling team for 5 years, said Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White.  White founded the squad.

White said, “He was a gentleman in every way. He was well liked and highly respected.”
