Chicago gang violence: Shavon Dean and Robert Yummy Sandoval, 1994
Derrick Hardaway, 14, and his brother Cragg, 16, who were both members of the Black Disciples and honor students, executed 11-year-old Robert Yummy Sandoval after Sandoval accidentally killed another honor student Shavon Dean, 14, in a drive-by shooting. Dean was walking a friend home when she was killed, and the shocking crime sent the city into a manhunt for her killer. The Cragg brothers were allegedly instructed by gang leaders to execute the 11-year-old Sandoval for damage control. After two days of being on the lam, Yummy was lured into a railroad underpass where he was shot twice in the back of the head.
The crime made national news, and Tupac Shakur wrote, produced and dedicated the song Young Niggaz from the Me Against the World album to the children of the ghetto.
