Alan Padilla, of the 5000 block of South Michigan Avenue, is charged with one count of first-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Jalen Stogner, in the parking lot of a laundromat in the 4800 block of South Ashland Avenue on Friday.

Just before he was killed, Jalen was doing the things a typical 17-year-old lives for; he recently celebrated his birthday, and had been practicing to get his driver’s license.
The teen was gunned down while helping his mother unload laundry at a laundromat in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.
CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot reports Stogner’s mother felt helpless as she watched her son die in front of her.
