No one has been charged in the July 11 drive-by shooting of 32-year-old Damion Bryant, who was shot to death in the 5200 block of West Quincy Street.

Youth in the neighborhood told the Chicago Sun-Times Homicide Watch they looked up to him.

And Rev. Joe Davis said his friend was a regular guy who must have been the victim of mistaken identity or a random victim.
